The fight, in vain, to stay alive.
Bear now the heaviest stone,
the fight, in vain, to stay alive,
resisting death to the final breath,
knowing, deep inside,
darkness will soon come
to eyes that no longer blink,
never so isolated,
and immune to the mercies of love.

After all burning bridges collapse,
and sink beneath the undertow,
to the emptiness of the abyss,
solemn rites will be surrendered,
by witnesses of the one disbound.

They'll cast down the empty shell,
to where the hungry roots grow,
and be, by nature,

(17 Lines)

Free Verse is a nonmetrical, nonrhyming style that closely follows the natural rhythms of speech. A regular pattern of sound or rhythm may emerge in free-verse lines but does not adhere to a metrical plan in the composition.
