My past haunts everywhere leaking out through the silken black ink of my pen

Evening comes shaking me from my porcelain perch knocking me to the floor

Misery deserting me and leaving me with only emptiness that never ends

Over you I tell myself instead of the warmth you used to give me I feel numb

Regrets surround me in countless nightmares never ending nostalgia I can't breathe

Includes the blunt indifference suffocating and strangling my heart like a twisted serpent

Everything charred by the fires of a passion I thought was real now is dead

Spoken, those words that are hiding in the cobwebs of my memory swept there to rot
