I haven't even touch upon it
All I see is blackness in my dreams
This darkness follows me like shadow
Is it an indicator to a bleak future
Am I made without a cure
?

the thoughtlessness pushes them forward
an empty musical order
they go tranced with no former
with no sense of horror
nowhere and onward
transfixed tortured
bleak of notes
cornered
tundra
The result of some experimentation with interesting structure.

the old, black moon
does not shine tonight.
he’s been eaten since noon
and gone from sight

the bright, bubbly sun
has lost his luster too.
hopes shining for none
despair opened anew

the vast, dreary void
never shined before
yet bright enough to destroy
it flares a color abhorred

a wandering soul
among the shattered bones of dreams
picking through the piles
just another thought while we are all in covid19 isolation

bleak
mondays
speak
distortion

stuck
in the eery state
of vacancy
& contortion

Those bleak , black  clouds

are full

of  

crystal

rain.

Long are the nights now
When dreams are no longer kind
Through air prowls the imminence of death
Soaks my soul, the mirth has gone
In my weariness all seem dull
Nothing to feel or imagine
Still hearing her voice, my hearse
Bedimming the memories left behind
In the moment of despair
A haunting melody pours from my lips
And fades into lurking darkness
Carving out my eyes to see
The secrets behind the shattered drapery
A journey through the lands of nihil
I've been here before

An idle cry echoes through the void
As silhouettes root away my thoughts
Ominous whispers louden, killing the peace
Leaving no solace behind
Confined to a long-lost hope
Seeking the forlorn smile
Yet, drowning within my own breath
Above my head, dwells a hungry ghost

waste your breath,
waste your time,

life is nothing but death
and you are worth nothing, but a dime.

to live, is to suffer
to suffer, is to live

with time, things will only get rougher
do not forgive.

for feeling are weakness

and life is full of nothing but

bleakness.
