Delicate Thread

How delicate the thread of life
Too easily warped and stretched
By the winds of fate
Which play them like a harp from Hell
With blistered fingers and jaded heart
Such a sinewy sound
Scavenged from decomposed dreams
And empty breaths
There is no melody
In a heart which has stopped beating
But how deafening the silence
Of the light of life snuffed out
Before its final symphony
