The literal darkness 

And the metaphorical darkness 

Bleed into each other,

And silence wraps around me

Like the arms of lovers long gone.

I can’t decide if the pain is so real or surreal. 

It hurts too much to be clever.

 

If I could step outside of my body

I don’t think I’d ever step inside again.

 

Forevermore 

A restless spirit 

Free from the pain,

But not the anguish.
