What is Anguish?

Sullen is
the air being inhaled
a wrecked land
empty souls
the once lush -  now arid flat
no promises left

Moment's gone
though it had its chance
with eyes closed
picture them
fragrant of cherry blossoms
cries of children's joy

It's still there
beating deep at night
feelings of
some things never moved beyond
they stuck in the past
