Navigating the void #1

I am alone, missing in action

Displaced by the chaos of my mind

Consumed by an invisible void

Hiding in plain sight

Unseen, unheard… unnoticed

A formless goal piercing the universe

I swim in unfulfilled vigor

Indulging apathy

Inhaling responsibility’s fragile scent

Exhaling only to a list on paper

Easily written, easily scratched out

Candles light my way dissecting paths

I put them out with the saliva of excuses

My mouth opens wide, parched by thought

A mute response to an empty existence
