Are you listening?
The weight of darkness
sickening in its finality
descends heavily upon me.
It has come to engulf me
to swallow me up
in its sorrowful starless sky
to wrap me in the chilled blanket of air
on this coldest summer night.
Gasping in this pain
choking on the words left unsaid
now too late,
no chance will come.
No soft carress of daylights warmth
to hold me
to lead me.
No hope of tomorrow to endure me.
The silent scream of disbelief
echos in my mind
while infinite tears of sadness
sear their reminder with their salty sting
into the wounds of this nights icy fingers.
wordlessly, soundlessly, shamelessly
