Dark Thoughts

alone, always alone
between dark thoughts
and midnight reveries
is a place you never
want to be
a place between
nightmares and sweet
memories
a place between
hope and despair
a place between
anger and repentance
no
you can’t escape
these dark walls
try and scratch
only to find they’re
painted black
no escape
grey clouds on
the horizon
heading towards
me
can’t be outrun
can’t be undone
empty soul
fill it quickly
yet there’s a
hole
now it’s empty
again
hands upturned
asking for alms
eyes bloodshot
can’t even dream
for
reality
won’t mercy do
no not yours
cryptic rain
trapped
yet running from
shadows
that don’t exist
yet leave imprints
a place that’s never
seen the light
why
because the candle
never glows
the eyes never see
the heart
can’t feel
except for
jagged pains
for something it
sought long ago
but
who cares now
the time is over
assasins on the
corner await their
turn
puffs of cold air
upon their breath
freezing cold
at
journey’s end
narrow so narrow
this box
earth spills
through
footsteps heard
judgement awaits
no not yours
tears regrets
no avail
now there’s only
light delight
horizon filled
i’m with You*
and that’s
the only thing
i ever wanted.
