Loneliness, deceitful and Cunning
Knowing your worst fears
Preying upon your doubts
Wait for it to pass
claustrophobic and anxious
Soon loneliness will become sadness
leading only to despair
the light is gone.
Like the flip of a switch,
The darkness rolls like a wave
It fears nothing, but for light
Mine unfortunately extinguished
I don’t fight it this time.
No kicking, no screaming.
No search for a candle
just lay down and hold my breath
air is thick with abandonment
No one is going to come for you.
Waiting and hoping extends suffering
You must simply close your eyes...
