Michelangelo's First Painting

Heaviness crushes as souls are drawn down

while burdens of time weighs excessively

Unable to ascertain answers that hide in shadows

paralyzed by the unknown

As if drugged under the aegis of sorrow,

dying in the name of pain

Breaths embellished with gravity

full of modest cinders that burn too much

Succombing to fate only to be beaten down by it

Sleep now,
