Lingering Darkness


Looking out, feeling the wind in your hands, cool air on your face
Feeling free, staring at the night sky and the city lights
Breathing in the smell of loneliness
Swimming in an ocean of thoughts and feelings
Dreaming of the darkness that taunt your dreams
Smiling through the comfort of a hug that masks the pain
Drifting off in the silence of the dark room
Going away in the never ending lonely road
The touch of the darkness a mere second away
Comforting you at every moment of the day
Slowly getting consumed by it
The darkness never leaves
