stealing away in the darkness

if lying
naked on a cold floor

within ice walls, this
dungeon of sorrow

frozen as if
the air is hard
to breathe in

stealing away in the darkness
stealing away in the eternal moment of sadness

long ago
a melody filled with beauty
now a saddened memory
left like a marker…

a buoy…

that floats along
in this eternal sea

oh, the lingering
of old feelings that
can not be forgotten

in these laden hours…

stealing away in the darkness
stealing away into those memories

of which
i treasure
as keepsakes
from another time

no solace for the weary…
the unlucky

on those cold floors
stripped bare as
i lay quiet

at the light
that peers
the crack
in the door…

waiting and

for an answer
that may never come…
