“ Failure ” ~ a venture into hell ~

 

If I have failed,

That you not hear,

My less than lucid

Words unclear,

Think me not stupid,

Lacking thus

Articulation  

Once robust,

As time now holds

I am to suffer

Tastes of failure…

 

Thus I ought tell

As I so venture

In this nadir,

What I want share

That you need hear

Now more often

Strangles there,

Between my mind

And memory’s lair,

Silenced sadly

In senescent hell!
