The Quiet Death of Echos

The sound of a heartbeat, heard only in the empty silence of loneliness How still this moment is, the smallness of being When each sunset is wrapped in gray, leaving behind another long night of yearning, to feel wanted, to feel needed, alone with emotions of misery, that come and go with each passing flickering light To stare into the abyss, feeling nothing Awakened by the mirror of your thoughts, that flutter in the background with emptiness To endure the quiet death of echos, that fade away from yesterday, leaving tomorrow silent contest Loneliness
