The darkness within

The sadness seeps into your soul

You can’t run

Can’t walk away

You’re bound 
The desert that holds you 

Within its bowels 

Your life exists 

Flickering flames

That don’t survive the night 
Meaningless mirth 

The cacophony of their voices 

Swirling inside your head

You can’t discriminate 

Torn, unforgiving 
True satisfaction 

When the works of your hand

Alive, shadowy night

Expressions of wonder 

Stolen whispers in the moonlight 
Fight your way out

There’s no end

It’s a cycle

No exit points
Trapped again
