Tears fell onto the velvet lining
A silken voice floats up in harmony
To the silence unopposed
Broken fragments of thoughts die
Fading when memories burn
The incense sinks onto the ground
Blackness chokes what was sought
Breathing to taste a single cry
A voice murmurs into dimness
Moving the shroud to drape a moan
Time eternal fails to convince
Tears continue to fall
The candelabrum holds no light
Only perpetual darkness lives

    This is a good poem...the flow was good..

    although i think it would read better if you changed the word "fell" to fall ..in the first line.... because its past tense and the rest of the poem is present tense.

    but overall this is pretty good.
