to one no longer

the sound
of yesterday’s sonnet
fades
in tomorrow’s sunrise
and i whither
like a bloom
ripped from the earth

the well of tears
has gone dry
and can provide
sustenance
no longer

my presence
has collapsed inward
leaving nothing

and though my lungs
still breathe
there is no life
left within the temple
of my heart
