It's hard
when your chest feels empty

It's hard
when you let out a cry but looks like a smile

It's hard
when you find loneliness amongst friends

It's hard
when you feel like there is no one there for you

It's hard
when you go to sleep at night and wake up the next day

It's hard
when the only person who understands you is solitude themselves.

It's hard.
just some thoughts

words don't soothe
touch doesn't fix
sight doesn't satisfy
I'm numb.

Stranded in my own sea of solitude

and

I'm drowning.

My fingers grace the keys......
left, right, left.....right....

Which one was it, again?
left, right, left.....right....

I just want to go in
left, right, left.....right....

left, right, left.....right....
the door now ajar, air thin

the door way casts its grim shadow on the floor,

And just like that, one becomes two
my shadow torn
away he goes
to sleep, once more
Left, right; his feet go on
left, right, left.....right....

.....Sinking,
…………sinking,
…………….sinking,

The water feels up to my neck,
It caresses my nostrils
Chest tight from the pressure,
I almost can’t breathe,

then I wake up.

The family I have
Doesn’t seem so family to me
The family I have
Is broken, as one could see

The real family I have,
not bound by blood
But by bond
Is the family I have
for me

A tender touch on my skin
A chill breath down my neck
My last thought is hardly in
My mind
Gone
My body
Thin
He takes my hand
Down a path
A path I can not see
He takes my hand
Down a path
For all eternity
Adam Black Dec 2019
His eyes tell what others don’t know
There’s only one he wants;
to lay by his side
He can not go to him,
for the living don’t belong
in graves
