Ramble On

Lying in the dark,
Staring at the abyss that lies ahead.

Freedom of solitude,
Fear of loneliness.

Music blaring in the headphones,
Unfamiliar silence accompanying the familiar sounds.

Forgetting the faces that made me,
Scared of looking at old photographs for the memories that they will bring back.

Sleepless eyes and mind,
Tired body longing for rest.

Jump! looking for a calm end,
Keep falling into the bottomless pit.

Hoping for dreams, calm as a lake,
Stuck with the violence of drowning.
