Lying

Staring

Seeing nothing

-

In the dark confines of my silent night

Watching the shadows from distant light

And wondering how long I have been inside

I fear to join their tight assembly

When my heart writhes in so much misery

I know they're laughing at me

The space cannot hide

Their grinning faces from my jealous eyes

Pretend to be alright to be alone and so I cry…

-

In the shade where no one sees

My tears soak me with disease

Sweet mourning cover me

Deliver me from this infirmity

Infecting every inch of me

Every moment filled with grief

That no one will perceive
