A noose lassos a broken Will
Dangling, weighted taut
by Nothing,
still. 
Hopelessness bound
circling life's throat
grasps for breath's love
imagined lock, knot, and choke. 
A marionette,
and a character's mask
troubled by threads 
woven from ash
 
A sprinkling of dew quenches
a blade, pierced from within, rusted, serrate. 
A time to mourn, a passing glance
a tearful eye, 
a wasted chance. 
from once what was, to never again,
be the dreams of a child
whose never been.
