one cold january night

Posted on January 10, 2015


Cold January

It hit me so hard

I felt no pain

From the shards

Lying shattered

And lost in the dark

Before feeling that blow

How did I not know

That this is it – and

It’s all that there is?

My longings have gone

All my cravings dissolve

Into and beyond the abyss

Am I alone here?

Feeling death drawing near

But still fretting

For a life yet half lived.
