Vessel of bitter seed

Black night of raven wings
crept through the still hours before dawn
laying heavy and thick
blanketing all in its path

Long tendrils of sorrow
for love no longer
entwined the body and soul
hollow echo of a once beating heart

Tears seeped through tight held lashes
trickling down cheeks pressed into pillow
muffled sounds of sobbing
sheets crumpled left in disaray

Devoid of passion and desire
needs taken without giving
hands grasping, prying open
to thrust with lust not care

Laying passionless
death of emotion that had once held strong
a vessel for anothers bitter seed
to wither and die not fed with manna of loving

Rays of morning light gain ground
across the darkened velvet sky
the warmth to bring an inner strength
worthy of so much more than this…
