Requiem

Sun goes down,
life drains with it
my hope – my love – fades:
crepuscular taint to life’s incandescent rays.

Love goes down –
love’s not worth this shit
and your plaintive rage
kills me in a million different ways.

Life goes down
’til the line runs flat
and silence, like water, cascades
to fill the chasm, to kill my days.

Innocence goes down
and I know in the dark
that follows, silence pays
and peace comes my way.

Night goes down,
dawn brings with it
a new day, unclear, cold – haze
I find solace in the solitude.

I go down, to the depths
of despair, and loneliness
but tomorrow I find strength,
and the will to carry on.
