Slipping Away

I feel my breath losing confidence;

I feel disappointed at realisations

I didn’t know could have affected me as much as they did,

I don’t feel sometimes;

I trudge on no longer for my sake,

I exist, of course, existing, listening, co-existing, only mimicking;

Implicit is the silence, explicit, the smile,

Cruel, not what loneliness knows, but ill,

Soft ripples on the waves, feckless and futile;

To draw strength from emptiness, oh!

Then try escape the vacuum, I insist.
