a place so dark
and calm and silent
so silent that
my soundless weeping keeps them away
at times they are around
yet they have no faces
thick bushes
narrow paths
feeling so empty
like chicken in a new cage
trying to make some new flies
craving for contact
sick and tired of my life
entertaining the thought of ending it
so restless
as if am sitting on a rock
running blindly through the streets
darkness consuming my screams
none is there for help
in need of a bright soul
a torch to mine
so that i stop wondering
when the wind put out my lamp
someone please be around
and give me a face in the light
and a hand in this
as i hear it’s contagious.
