and the world turns

shade
becomes shadow
and shadow
becomes night
until my soul is swallowed
in darkness

every tick of the clock
each moment in time
adds to the weight
that bears down
on my spirit

there are no stars
to dot the sky
no presence to hint
at life
only the relentless
absence of light

my tears are gone
i can shed no more
for there is no purpose
and no relief

the pain is real
the agony suffocates
and annihilates my heart
until i crumble and fall
a lifeless husk
lost

and the world turns
