Dark Hallway

transfixed

I stumble down
shifting halls of
my angst my
distress
a cold stale breath
stagnates and permeates
its doom
onto my essence.

beguiled

I entomb myself
in the moment
asphyxiating
flailing
clawing
grasping for
desperately
disintegrating walls.

abdicated

I capitulate to
the lair
that cold cavity
pit of dread
that
pool of tears
where my devotion
thrashes plangently.

interred

in the filth
of want
of need
of putrefying wonder
entombed within
every pore
every inch
of my desolation.

moribund

I turn to stone
my listless gaze
still defiantly
fixated ruefully
on the luminance
the far distant
light
where steadfast
my hope resides.
