Darkness eludes my eyes
Yet the sun remains at peace
Against a sky bluer than my soul, stars gleam
While the moonlight witnesses my grief
Every day and night, recycling routines
Familiar reminders of loneliness
Constantly nag at me
As I deliberately avoid mirrors
Taking sidesteps to dodge witnessing this mess
From inside I scream
Plead for stability
Overanalyze dreams unreached
Struggle to move on and forget
My mind, fatigued by tension
For decisions unable to amend
Separates my psyche from reality
Causes unshakable dependence
On sadness, while I contemplate
Walking towards dusk
Resting my eyes, able to dream
Of triumphantly draining the virulent blood
