Last Call of Calypso

Last Call of Calypso


Loneliness is a phantom which

sucks the marrow from bones


of hope. Shadows dance

around the periphery of


your eyes, while you pray

for something living to


see the pale scars that

embed your heart.


Daily motions of

errands straddle you


in full submission with

fangs at your throat


While in the splintered

back of your mind,


You wonder

what the embrace


of strangers would

feel like in comparison


to the arms of sorrow
