Love was captured in a white urn

Peering in, I made a silent prayer

Life demanded and I caved

Responsibilities, cascading like the ocean waves

Strings of fate that failed to entertwine

Forever to hear the ghosts whine

An eternal visage of beauty awoke me

Yet dull are my eyes that hold no luster

For in my sight is the past and they hold no future

Drowned in flesh and words, yet do not feel or hear

Alone and without, in a world that I cannot bare

My death was captured in a lone white urn
