Midnight musings


A seamless trio of steady breaths intertwine

wafting harmoniously

through the silence.

tranquil sounds linger teasingly

and clash mockingly against my

obscenely loud heartbeats.

clacking keys provide sole camaraderie

as night sky turns opaque and

loneliness abounds.

ghostly thoughts haunt the still air,

translucent agonies residing comfortably in my

tormented mind.

details of the day's history churn relentlessly in my gut,

posing questions more potent than the acid they thrive in.

there, sedated by the steady rhythm of self flagellation,

I am, at last, mercifully conquered by sleep.
