Failure to Pay

Gaze
ever upwards
eyes slitted
remorse
given so much time
given so much energy
forgiven
time 
and again
only ever
burst into conflagration.
I am broken.
There is nothing more 
the well
this well
untapped 
drained
vile men
lands once fertile
shattered
cracked 
dirt filters through the air
no more….. 
no more can I take
pollution
deforestation
man’s folly
raping 
over and over 
believing 
never shall the piper be paid.
Night has fallen
moonlight
eyes peering 
water 
calamity is coming
my view
one last loving look
once abundant terrain
rock hard
sustaining life no more
as behind 
deafening crescendo
waves building 
surging
what once was
is no more.
