Dearly Departed by Wayne Russell

Inaccessible words,
driven to this point,
madness suits the
dead stars and the
unfeeling universe.

Love departed and
depleted, it did this
not to you, yet to
me, thrown into
terminus oblivion.

This is where wolfs
devour, what remains,
this heartbreaks' for
you, yet you have
moved on, just as
everyone else does.
