How desolate my mind is!
Sometimes.

Once, flourishing, 
all green,
but runs barren now;
like an insipid gardener 
in a waning garden.

For the sake of it,
my mind is pervaded by
a million unfinished words,
a thousand ash-dead dreams,
a hundred names,
and numerous pale evenings,
but, as if something is up there
draining everything.
Yes, it has no space
for anything new
and yet it's so baffling
how empty my mind is.
