Another Setting Sun Unloved

Further days are passing, lapsing long
Upsetting to unbecoming 
At dawn, always loneliness undaunting 
That continues on...
By inward breaking in

Will it ever come to fruitions end 
The offsetting, untiming, to complete unnerving
This I ask myself, as the sun and I are quickly becoming 
Sinking, drowning friends
Deep into each others night of nexus, merciless and unrelenting

The drag of it, an exasperating friction exhausting
By this not forgetting, beneath the spotlight of a taunting moon
As too soon, again the beginning 
Of, the into giving 
Another phase unto going through

And hence, once again to my own undoing 
Upon this orb I do not move, but yet I am spinning, drifting 
With a consequence left of, more of nothing, more 
But, creeping cracks eroding, what once was forever yours 

Of this tattered soul, that now must face its first inquisition heartbreaking
About a love in a tilted world, serendipitous it seems, only when it's still 
Or, a branding upon a human’s fragile heart 
With "why's" which one will never be fully comprehending
Or rather a hope that may never even be fulfilled
