Snake crawling in my heart
Hawk gazes at silvery light
Darkness drifted me to hell
How to hide in my shell
Scratching my little head;
Twiching my sore feet, I walk miles
To hear last warning bell
Every effort is in vain
Why feeling so much pain
Tortured soul lying in secluded lane
Is there any tunnel, Or I am an insane
Emptiness has overpowered me
Is there a grey ghost who glued me
Beetles sucking my flesh and bones
Owls howling at demon’s night
Peeping from the corner of my eyes
Thou Victim of venom dwelling in mind
Is there any stain left on my soul
Or voidness clinches me to the core

      Oh, not my fear. It’s about the state when a person go through emptiness, depression in life. I think one can relate.

    That’s too dark but very subtle when you are describing a hellish life. Nicely done (y)

    The emotion is good. The rhyming tone is though not my cup of tea yet this piece speak about the emptiness in a beautiful sad way. I still feel you can work with the imagery.🌻
