Husk

My petrified corpse lies face up and mouth agape,

organs and blood melted into a putrid slosh

of festering love and hope.

For years my body withered into weakness as I starved.

My skin cracked dry as my brittle fingers held the frail pieces of my heart

out to you as you walked by.

Soon I grew too weak to walk or stand,

so I dug my bones into the earth as I crawled at your heels,

pathetically still holding out my molding heart,

hoping to be fed.

But I was a nuisance, and so you left me to die.

So here I am,

a lifeless carcass.

A sad story that has already been forgotten.
