The day has passed
In a gray haze
Tasks undone
Friends drifting away
Yet the haze
Doesn’t pass

I read and read
Till I read no words
No words of sense
No words of remembrance
The haze has settled in
Loneliness aggravates

Creeping in
Deeper into my heart
As I drift further away
Sinking in a black ocean
Hazy murky waters
Pull me deeper

Darkness is settling
With a finality
Like no other
Left alone
I have no option
But to sink under
