TOTAL DESTRUCTION

Total Destruction   (draft) 

How can I retrieve
a burned sun and sunken days
from the timeless void of un-space?
And if the loss is absolute,
how can the killer save his soul?

All roads are under curfew.
Screening my years
I obtain no wisdom or meaning.
No absolution, no salvation.

I have no hope,
not even of being burned alive
for I have died long ago,
witnessing my execution
as a foreign event.

I am not showing my pain off.
I have no hope,
only unredeemable soul and laments.

You only had love to give away
and forgiveness is unknown
to your innocence.
