It's So Quiet

Profound loneliness pervades my existence.
I'm approaching 30 years old. My life is a mess.
It's just one calamitous relationship after another.

And then a disastrous day.

The kind of day that makes me crawl into bed and sleep for a week.
Only taking a break from my sleep for the occasional cigarette.

This is profound sadness. My soul is aching.

Feigning happiness is not even an option.
I can't even feign sadness. That would be a step up.
It's a morose darkness inside of me I've never felt before.

It's really very simple.
On easy motion. One magical sound:
