In The Quiet

Is it age?
Or is it environment?
Perhaps both
Ground together by living
The nothingness manifests
In the quiet
The solitude
Taking over
Breathing melancholy
Into the space I inhabit
Within and without
It wears heavy
Greying perception
Yet it is oddly not unwelcome
Or feared
To its dysphoric presence
In the quiet
The solitude

The Darkness

the fear never leaves
the darkness lives deep within
a silent witness to your life
patiently lying in wait
for the right moment

like a gun
the trigger is flicked
and the darkness becomes
a smothering helplessness
panic rising
mind racing
fear takes control
soundless whimpering
of one separated, isolated and

don’t open the door!
keep the door locked
stay safe
fear is on the other side
intuition screams
malevolent intentions

light the only savior
the switch flicked
by another unsuspecting
devine grace of their actions
the darkness retreats
like fire shoved at a hungry wolf
creeping back in to the deep of
your psyche
