A Helpless Spectator, I Found Myself Lost - Poem by Manny Negron

The days go by, consistently inconsistent
The broken silence raises its voice
What did I do wrong?
“Please come back…at least take me with you”
Never understanding the misunderstandings,
I helplessly spectate, making sense out of nonsense
“Surely things will get better
Dawn comes again; this isn’t forever”
Light turns to dusk and dusk into darkness
I find myself lost, never to be found again
As I wander in the quiet absence of light,
I find nothing worth living for
And live nothing worth being found
The sun never makes its guest appearance…
