Barren



BARREN

Forgotten feelings buried leagues beneath the pain from years of suffering through shattered moments.  Tears no longer fall because the river has run dry and the rain no longer replenishes the basin.  The thunder rolls and lightening crashes, yet my face is not wet.  The dirt is beginning to crack from the dry spell that has taken siege of the spirited land and all life is beginning a declining stage towards darkness.  God has abandoned me, and my emotions are a barren wasteland.
