NaPoWriMo 2015, Day 18: Ground out (a poem)

Today’s Writer’s Digest April PAD Challenge prompt turned out to be a tricky one (I accidentally let a stray ‘e’ slip in)—though that may have been mostly to my choice of vowels…

Wrought from ghosts
too stubborn
or too drunk
to drown out
thoughts hollow’d out
by words not found
out of bounds

Rough shadows
old songs
shorn of sound
lost to ground
only clouds look upon
for now
you drown out loud
