Child of Sighs
He sighs, and folds away his life again,
That paper-bag map of hoped for
And never lived dreams, and seams
That loosen and fray the days away.

He whispers.
He watches.
He waits.

He sighs, and unfolds his life again,
And turns it around, upside down,
Till all the dreams fall out, and doubts
No longer cloud his eyes or skies.

He sits.
He stares.
He shuffles.

He sighs, his world is a lonely breath
Of air escaping from an echo that
No longer knows from where it follows,
Or when it faded from bright to jaded.

He lies.
He cries.
He dies.

He sighs, his life blows away on a breeze
Born of all the trapped air he ever was.
