Death of an Artist

The pen's dusty
It sits in the corner by a tattered paperback

He sits at the desk at a whim
But it's too late
The darkness has crept in

The blank pages are a mirror
They reflect a tombstone that reads
"Killed by Ambition"

The glass stays damp
It sits where the fire once burned in his gut
