Tick Tock

Sleep eludes me

Staring into blackness

The darkness a cavern

Vast oppressive

Emptiness engulfing me

Battering my soul

At sea on a rudderless boat

Nothing in front

Nothing beside me

The silence deafening

Debates with the devil

Why am I here

Where should I go

What is my purpose now

Who would even care

Evening mantra

Pounding my brain

The body a mere cicada shell

Hollow untouched unwanted

The heart beating a dull ember

Drafts of despair sweep

A weathered stone

All alone

Tick tock went the clock

  1. A piece of beauty. Lonliness is haunting. It is where sit. In the darkness. A glimpse of light. We follow that light. Light is life. Thank you, a kindred spirt consumed by the passion of writing.
