Unrequitting swampy
Forests with their
Beautiful indifference
Can bear no more
The muddy soil
Has been salted
Too thickly
With bitter tears
Gnarled roots
Sunk deeply
Beneath the tannic
Waters meant
For joyous growth
Shoots mockery and
Wasted efforts
Beauty transformed
Misty forgetfulness
Is there nothing
Left of love when
Self and health
Exchanged for
Dreaming wants
Tossed aside as
Rubbish piled all
Around difficult to
Navigate history
