Endless Eternity 
by Ela Lourenco


Empty shell, decaying wood

I drift through the crumbling bricks

No one comes and no one goes

Here in the hollow where I dwell

I wander aimlessly in my living tomb

Long forgotten, cast aside

Locked away to keep me ‘safe’

By a lover so jealous

He could not bear even the sun to see my face

I was flattered at first

And basked in his love

But time passed, as did his lust

And one day he appeared no more

No food, no water, I withered from the inside out

Praying until death came for me

I thought that would finally grant me release

But my spirit lingers on, never free for all eternity…

  1. A tragic tale – love the rhythm of this poem – it reads so well and has a wonderful pace.
