Battered and withered, cant further strife nor tire
Finding no purpose ,no guiding light, just self consuming ire
Once a blazing light ,sprung from a raging wild fire
Blown out ;your time undue , certainly not fair
Why? In sheer earnest I ask, trust me I do care
A familial disturbing darkness now trails my path
Cruel voices whisper as I lay on this thistly berth
"What can an ugly low life be ever worth"
The space you vacated, forgone is a good share of my mirth
Yesterdays had more savour ,hope dwelled with more depth
Swimming to unwittingly sink in this bleak dreadful abyss
Alongside folk who partake in that sense of something amiss
Pining for that forfeited moment of a goodbye kiss
Kind words and warm hugs, had no emphasis
Banished to anguish in an expanse of endless eclipse
Yearning a sweet smile long gone; lost to the bane of a fatal choice.
