Midnight Musings

Am I screaming in an empty field?
Is this just another rant at the stars?
Are my truths and my lies to remain forever
In the dark and locked behind bars?

Am I swimming into deep waters?
Is this just another howl in the night?
Are my words to float uselessly forever
Without nuance or power or bite?

Am I wearing my skin away?
Is this just another pointless rhyme?
Are my thoughts and emotions destined forever
To be the victims and prey of time?
