A gasp for air
Doesn't absorb
Into my flesh to replenish
My body.
Only echoes through
Voices and chambers
Rings out to a place where you
Were once familiar
Like dim curtains and dust.
An empty Caracas
An empty shell
Hollowed out
Carved so no one can tell
That I once had a memory
But I banished it away
Just so I don't have to live with this
Another day.
