Abyss

My tires Treading Into the pavement Rhythmically Hitting the lines Of the sidewalk Darkness Surrounds me A single path Leading nowhere Through an abyss Color A foreign word In this vastness The opposite Of the world I used to know And now the one I only dream of Loneliness Is my biggest enemy Speaking to myself So I don’t forget What a voice Sounds like My raspy voice Covering the sound Of my dying Heartbeat Which only reflects My thoughts What’s there to live for Anyways? Lies A common thought of mine Feeding myself Fake hope Fake endings Saying them so much I almost believe them To be true
