Loneliness 28/12/2009

I have a faithfull
Companion,
One that has been
With me
Ever since
My first memory,
My first breath,
My first conscious
Moment of my own
Existence.

Is this darknes
That devours me,
That drags me
To the bottom
Of this blacness,
And drowns me,
In this thick water
That feels my lungs
With despair
And my heart
With the coldness
Of the slow death
that never ends…

The blindfold
That impedes me
To see
The moon…
The stars…
And everything
That would allow me
To find my way
In the dark…
And causes
The water
To well
In my eyes…

Is the one
That holds My hand
When I am afraid,
The one
That wipes my brow
When I am
Sick in bed,
The knott
In my stomach,
The scream caught
In my throat
That refuses
To die,
The tears I hide
And the laughter
That covers
A painful cry…
The sad face I see
In the ceiling
When I lay down,
And that keeps
Haunting me
When my eyelids
Are closed.
And that hollow image
In the mirror
That I call my own

It never leaves me…
It hides
In the darkest
Corners
Of my soul…
Lurking
Like a wild
Animal…
Attacking
When I pass,
And holding on
To me,
When I try
To escape,
With teeth
And claws.
My skin bears
Witness
with its scars…

It is my most loyal
Friend,
Never abandoned me,
Has never left…
Its name
Is loneliness…
