Image for the poem Smothered Silence

Smothered Silence

Filtered hues of shady grey
Seep through my fog like invading clay
Newborn aliens covet me across the moons array
Under subjective orders to expose my decay

Exasperated crosses proliferate my soil
Blasphemed with names to tattoo my turmoil
Some are blessed holy designed for my spoil
Where others are desecrated to incur my boil

My residents lay slumber
embalmed in their waste
 Silent cries are immortal psalms
extricating my smothered face

From dusk till dawn
Iím feared by most
The wicked are drawn
To my unholy ghosts

My flesh is hollow yet firm against the rain
Garnished with flowers to commemorate their pain
Anguish and sorrow remind me of the slain
Their afterlife is woven to the heart of my vein

My hunger branches out as far as the view
My stomach extracts itself for your debut
Choking the night with my sporadic residue
Awaiting to lay claim your smothered silence too
