Lonely in the darkness

Lonely in the darkness 
company kept at home
not in the mood for
tonight, walking the streets 
again, familiar haunting 

Lonely in the darkness 
My breath forming and flying 
like hookah smoke
it twirls and dissipates 
leaving my sight, entering void

Lonely in the darkness 
the lamp-lights spotlight 
fixed on intended places
they are lined like
a grinning goblin's
teeth in rows, licking its
chops at my soul. 

Lonely in the darkness 
My soul is quivering 
crying out for anyone 
anything, familiar place 
              familiar feeling 

Lonely in the darkness 
the town a void 
Darkness, enveloped by the 
cold fog, as foggy as 
my mind 
Intoxicated, but not by drink 
or drugs, perhaps some are needed, 
NO, Intoxicated by the 
thing inside, the Bug
the Parasite, the other ME
Dr. Jekyell and Mr. Hyde 
I sometimes feel

Lonely in the darkness 
the only company my 
cell phone, glance at the 
time, slowly moving.
glance at the friends list
all my friends are gone
some in other countries 
others beyond reach 
others not sharing any insomnia 
My lonely lifestyle 

Lonely in the darkness 
My footsteps, company only 
pitter patter, echoes 
fleeing even from My
feet, not wanting to be...

Lonely in the darkness
"What we do in life
echoes in eternity"

"And like echoes, 
ends up a little distorted"

both statements are true 
I feel distorted 
I feel like an echo 
passing along time and space 

Lonely in the darkness 
My cell phone buzzes 
A response 
A friend 
the only one willing to help
willing to listen 
an ant amongst an 
empty farm 
the cars go by 
police and others 
the streets yield no-
one, nothing, I am the
King of Nothing 
Prince of the Void 
an Emperor with an empty 
court, all subjects, all
friends gone.
The Poet gets this way 
they say, a moody madness 
we inherit, from our parents 
our Collective Unconscious 
there are times when we are 

Lonely in the darkness
