I know what it feels to be sad,
Feels like you should never be born,
When for you everyone has left.
No more I like the light,
How ghostly be the sight,
No soft feelings, no sensual senses,
Have drained that vessel of pride.
Crawling around like a leech,
Living on the acidic bleach,
Macerating blanched veins and limbs,
Consuming the seething frizz.
Not a word that I utter,
In endeavor to pronounce better,
Finally lost is my voice,
Closed with ineffable shutter.
I don’t see any morning,
Or hope of night’s turning,
It seems to be the end,
Where death is the most cunning.
