Sadness

A damp blanket
Cold and stifling
Mossy mould thriving
Its Roots growing deeper
Into the soft tissue
Silently taking hold
A tendril at a time
       Digging
       Into
       My mind
       And
       Soul

Shutting out the light
Life in forever shade
A blue canopy
Of sounds and scents
Of tastes and
A feeling of
       Ice
       Running
       Through
       My
       Veins

Burning like fire
       Stifling
       Pressure
       Clamping
       My Heart
       In a vice

The twittering of birds
       Stilled
The warmth of the sun
       Cancelled
The light of Summer
       Gone

The taste of absinthe on my tongue
The sound of raindrops on the window pane
The scent of burnt leaves in Autumn
The feel of a cold draught on my skin

Darkness
Descends
Quietly
