Vacant Moments - Poem by Brenda Markgraf

Vacant moments where
Silence trembles
Grief's face wailing
Mournful tears
Taunting curse of
Departed years
Like thunderous clashing cymbals
Uttered words of love unspoken
That lie upon a burning vision
Demon spirit of scorns
Haunting incision
Retorted rhapsody passions mystery
Fleeting moments cold as stone
Gaze upon the lilies white
Hush interrupted by the
Silent sounds
Echoing in they hallowed shrine
