soul mates

The crumbling myths of our desecrated heroes
Reveal wounds deep inside ourselves.
We gaze deep down inside those individuals who,
With all the fortitude of their glorious selves,
Resorted to the medium of quiet harangue
To gash us deep within ourselves.


Theirs was a message that was laid deep and clear
As we regaled ourselves in kingly triumph
At the victory garnered in short spurts;
At the deception that they harboured in the warmth
And viciousness of their uncleanly resolves.


They left us in the maelstrom of an ever increasing
Pool- the depth of which measured
And contrasted with the riches garnered
Over the course of those years- the dwindling
Of those promises of yore that we hoped to live by.
And thus we are left to regale with those wounds
-Being easy speculation for passers-bye.
