    Lassitude

    The fire in my soul burned out
    Into wisps of agony
    Exhaustion seeped in through every pore
    Addling the heart and mind
    Trammeled by the weight of reality
    Chaining me to the chasms of the blues
    As the cosmos turned sable,
    the stars remained far from reach
    Glinting wickedly in the distant horizons
    Full of malice, without a tinge of solace.
    Deluged in the sea of despondence
    I sought not to touch the stars or cross the rosy tinted horizons
    But to stay afloat in the dark waters
    To keep myself sinking into the bottomless fathoms of hushed whispers and mutinous murmurs.
