In a dark room
amidst the halo of smoke
Ruminating over life
left so sullen, so morose

Talk to that ghastly spook
It calls itself silence
flouting at me
sans feelings sans words

I cry I weep
'Please don't let me alone'
As it says good-bye
With the promise to return

Leaves me tangled to myself
Exasperated in sweat
I feel a shudder run through
Of the agony never felt

As I try to put to death
Myself, with a stroke
Wish to die someday
In the halo of smoke
