Staled Within Oblivion

born to live in the mist, lost and forgotten

left behind when every moment is forsaken

cast the shadow for those eyes are forbidden

shuttered into pieces, all unseen and hiddenun

derneath in the coldness, remained stale

till time to revive each breath to tell the tale

no life within, frozen in the breeze of time

in shivering cold, once more clock will chime

to linger among the green leaves rustling

dancing with soft sounds of winds whistling

when it will finally find the strayed rhymes

buried in the ground, was a shallow grime

staled within oblivion took shelter to rest

exist pale and frail just to redeem the bes

twill be here in a world no one will know

with memories of time as the winds blow

staled among the still waters, a burdened heart

within the oblivion time never spared for a start
