a meaningless fragment
of a surreal illusion
unknown, uncertain,
an empty existence
pieced together by shards
of broken memories
encompassed between
endless echoes of bitter sorrow

Once bright eyes
suddenly devoured
by this poisoned reality.

seeking escape into the elusive
calm of the beyond
desperately wandering
through this vast emptiness
lost, descending into the veiled darkness
hidden within the intricate maze
of my unworthy heart

I confess …
in my silent screams
I am only the dust
of a once whispered breath
standing upon the precipice,
the very edge
of a mortal heartbeat
hesitating, I falter
upon life’s futile edge

in surrender
