Ink

Slowly, slowly
Sinking away.
Lower and lower
Almost out.

Splotches
On a clean paper.

My life.

Smudges
Of black.

Seeping, seeping
Bleeding out.
Sinking and sinking
Draining away.

Splotches
On a clean paper.

My life.

Smudges
Of black.

Slowly, slowly
There it goes.
Lower and lower
Finally gone.

Splotches
On a clean paper.

My life.
Run dry.
