Lightless



How do you look at a world without the light?
How do you move forward when everything is gone?
How do you see when everything before you is darkness?
We was chasing the stars as they shot through the night.
We fought each other for the glimmer of light in darkness.
We might be meant for this life of darkness.
I've found my reasons to seek the light within the void.
I've been searching for an escape to this lightless life.
I've contemplated suicide to end the suffering in darkness.
How does it feel to never see anyone and only live alone?
How can it be our destiny to only dwindle in this pain?
How do you compose when everything you're after is gone?

About this poem

Some thoughts of lonely are but ankers to a lightless void.
