What Remained

All words were spoken

All gestures made and then made again

Silent pauses, drumming fingers,tearful pleadings

Played their part

Grumpy stares, dagger eyes, pursed lips

All in the hope that push would come to shove

When all was said

When all was done

What remained was nought

What remained was not

To be put back together again

For the Great Fall had done its job

Had taken its toll

And what remained was rot

What remained was wrought

With fear and shame and guilt

Insurmountable, Irreparable

Was what remained
