A faint glow of light Casting long shadows in the corridor Dust gathering, In this house riddled with secrets Lurching behind the curtains. Time, stands still, As these walls seem to breathe With their eyes watching me. In this endless solitude, I've found my solace In this madness, I have begun to revel. Intoxication finds me hospitable Blankly staring at the photographs Hung up high on the wall. And I whisper into the growing darkness An unsolvable equation to my insanity. I have lost myself within these hallowed halls, Built a temple around my being With my inebriated dreams. I fall deeper and deeper Further away from all that is real. Oh how comforting, This swirling blackness, Ushering me in to the unknown.
