Silent killer

Loneliness eats me up

like a hungry vampire

on a hunting spree.

Defenseless, I sit

on my pinnacle

buried in my ego

staring at the slide show

of when I still had you

and we were one.

Memories of us

leaves me sad

over and over again

germinating loneliness

in my heart’s center

and though

I walk around

like all is fine

I can feel loneliness

ripping my heart apart

and enjoying its savor.

  1. Great idea for a piece Emmanuel! I have felt this way before…There was about 3 years where I could not sleep I ran the nights and worked all day and about once every 2 weeks I would crash for a 16 hour period and start all over again…I hated living that way but night time always made me think in the darkness and then sleep would not come so then I went to see the rest of the creatures of the night!Loneliness is a vampire…Definitely!
