angst speaks when words cannot
with pain sheltered by tears
softly tempered through whispers
giving voice to profoundly sewn fears

overwhelmed by life’s losses
running blind and all alone
treading over broken hearts
searching for ways to atone

manipulations of past and present
collaborations spun vast
chasing ghosts from the void
attempts at a soul recast

clouds of emotion dissipating
scorched away by schemes of hate
forever at war deep within
devoid of willingness to elate
