Gossamer

I wandered through your spiral web
With wings not so unlike a moth would wear
And holding little seashells to my ear I heard the rise and ebb
So like a tired ocean in despair

That cast a calming cadence down
Upon the shores of flesh along the spine
Like feathers falling softly where the rain sat like a melting crown
Upon a countenance that knew decline

With lips now resting bloody wet
From dining still on what was lacking taste
The residue like love and loss and loathing and of deep regret
For all I never failed to wholly chase

Beyond your lonely shadow pale
Where wings had long abandoned any might
I followed through the gossamer that offered but an ending trail
And traded, to forget, the dream of flight
