It saddens me.
You were here looking at me, smiling; I open my eyes to darkness that surrounds me. The same darkness brings you back again when I close my eyes and I’m beguiled.
Dreams are prisons and memories are torments; yet we surrender. Wilfully. The only answer I can give to any question that has you in it is “I don’t know”. I indulge in emotional debauchery, clinging on to subtleties of my imagination; overdosed on hope.
The alleys that I trot are infested with infidelities and vices of broken and the damned; there is no escape. I try to run away but an eerie comfort clasps my hand and I carry these shackles towards the limbo of our broken promises.
