Painful embers stab the dark

Of pain too rich to bear

Callous flames, beguile a heart

Left stained by acrid air

Dreams denied by rancid thoughts

On lips too vain to care

Lifetimes lost in frozen eyes

A soul beyond repair

This is very eloquent and seems to capture the mood so well that I wish it would progress to resolve the state reached (and become a meditative poem).
