Sun Sets

Dust, veneer thick, coating books unread,

Blinds broken, yet unyielding to the weak sunshine,

You’re weak, son shine,

Promises broken before they have even been verbalised,

Verbal, eyes, speaking tomes, volumes,

Paint yellowed like the nicotine stained workers hands,

As planes chase sunrise,

Boats consumed by sunsets,

Sun sets on the day,

On the life never lived.
