upon this crusted earth

where do i belong,
echoes within,
my mind,
i feel these haunting words,
etched upon my soul,
full of lonely songs,
my muse as come undone,
as I walk this rock alone,
upon this,
dust filled orb,
shedding my,
young mans dreams,
I see the end of time,
as love,
unwinds my heart,
I rest my weary bones,
beside the babbling brook,
the times releives my pain,
the past,
hides deep,
within my mind,
the future sheds a tear,
midas turned his back,
looking for escape,
from my saddened past,
the immortality of my ,
i place,
a rose,
beside the emptiness,
that lies in front of me,
i hear,
the song within,
my bleeding heart,
hell is close,
the journey begins,
the end is near,
yet life remains the same,
where will i start,
where will i begin,
where do i belong,
upon this crusted earth,
haunted by,
this old mans song,
burning deep,
within my heart…..
