Things Never Meant To Be Like That... But They Were

Written by: Abdullah Jasim

Fourth were feelings…

Seeking…
Inside…
Looking…
Efface
Neath…
Crawling…
Egress…

Is that light…? Why does it seem so darkened?
A black light… but it burns… yet seems gardened…
Flowers? Trees? Grass? Fields…? Set on fire…
Mirth… lost
Sadness… gone
Happiness… never existed
Agonies… forgotten
Wipe it, isolate it, erase it, then forget it…
My life seems to perfectly fit…
Fit with these words
Detaching myself from allies…

Twilight…
Waiting…
Ignorance…
Surprises…
Tears…
Estimating…
Death…

Last was death…

Bleeding through my veins…
Escaping from my pains…
I’ve seen this before… but where?
Will I ever just stop… need to take care…
Screaming… from my inner side…
Seeing the horizon stretching wide…

Detaching from life…
