Terror and fright consume me:
Light leaves and dark trails behind me.
I am forever alone with no one near or close,
In this secluded island, I stand morose.
I run and run,
With nowhere to go, I still run.
I shout and shout,
With no one to hear, I doubt.
I hear my heart pounding.
"Lub dub lub dub," it is saying.
I feel the cold, the emptiness, the despair
This misery I can no longer bear
I see a small flicker of light;
I run to that place with delight,
Only to see a firefly
I see my hopes awry.
It has been long
Where does the light belong?
As I wait, I see another demise:
The firefly dies.
I wait for another light to come.
And again, it fails me, my hope turns to crumbs.
Numb feeling, there is no glee.
I let the darkness consume me.
