At Sea In Misery - Poem by Duke Benson

It’s a gloomy quiet black night
On my way to you
The road is long and wide
And black is the night
No smiling moon
No twinkling stars
No fireflies
No chirping crickets
Just a silent gloom
I feel lost!
With a brave heart, I march on
The further I go
Gloom suffocates me as a wet blanket
With a wavering heart, I reverse
As I reverse
Gloom keeps chocking me
Furiously, my heart palpitates
Protesting rebelliously against my chest
Enquiring what my brain is doing
Then a light
Then darkness
Then another light
Closer it comes
Then fades away
Darkness again
What’s happening?
An illusion
My mind goes haywire
I pray you notice my absence
And come find me
Then a light
Restrained hope
My prayers answered?
Then darkness
I’m falling into an endless abyss
Scared, frightened then suffocating…
In the gloom
Needing a sense of direction
I cry for you
I stagger to my right; more darkness
My wish is not to be petrified
I toddle to my left; more gloom
My need for you magnifies
I quickly pace forward; complete obscurity
My desire for you amplifies
I totter back; the murkiness becomes worse
My cries for you intensify
I need you
