Light in Darkness

Like a failing leaf I stumble  Falling into oblivion I shudder Watching with eyes wide shut I forsake convention for bliss Inviting me is the darkness eternal Underneath the layers of dust Can't fathom what lies beyond Perhaps a smile of a loved one  Perhaps a face not seen for long embrace not held when it was time A heart can only take so much Perhaps mine is made of stone Beneath every smile, every breath It aches it shatters it melts it breaks The world calls to me oblivious Not knowing how I loath its existence Glimmers of happiness, a child's voice a companion's embrace, light in darkness
