in the darkness

it calls me


when the sun comes

it screams at me


it battles my happiness

and smothers my passion


little by little, inching

it steals my soul


my flag fell long ago

an act of treason, alone


once my soul went dark

there was no coming back.


it came looking yesterday

I tried to run


as quickly as possible

I avoided the world


as quietly as possible

I walked all alone


in the darkness

it calls me
