of alone.

Posted to Poetry

i diminish into paralysis
stones as my own mind..
with a sense of feeling less
or descending far behind.
inspired as, alone forever
i comfortably inhabit so
all aloof from loves endeavor
yet somehow seeking, i know.
darkness falls when i smile
emptiness seeps in cracks
this all rings true for awhile
but i trip while looking back.
busting out of weaving light
commercialized promise bought,
in his empty eyes i might
free what was horribly wrought.
trust was stolen, nighttime thief
for now i’ll turn inside
ascending your times, in disbelief
alone, stiff, safe, i’ll ride.
