Flows through me


Engulfs my mind


Looms over the remains of my soul

The past

That I once knew

Has come back

To haunt me

The friends I once knew

And knew again

Are leaving me

All I have left

To me

Are those

Who are my friends,

Are those who are my soul,

My life

Somehow still

The question shrouds my mind

Why does this darkness,

Still haunt me?

How does this pain of the past,

Come back at me

Like a knife

Cutting its way

Into the stomach of its final victim

Before it too



Lifeless as the body

That gave it life
