sleep well pallid moon

shards of glass
on the cool breeze
cutting deeply into
the resonating pangs
that come with rising
opening tired eyes
to take in the majesty
in the fleeting seconds
each day feeling
the prolonged effects
of the living condition
eroding expression
off of calcium masks
layered musculature
covered in failing flesh
less emotive each new
sunrise until only
the false smile remains
a final farewell to be
interred into the
poisoned soil
as chemically infused
rains pit the granite
erasing our names
from the annals of history

good morning
sweet sparrows
sleep well
pallid moon
i send the dust motes
of my fragility
in hastily scribbled
notes of love
to be carried
soft kisses
to the cheeks of
of my beloved ones
