Darkness - Poem by Matthew J. A. Bryan

I have eyes, yet I do not see,
I have hands, yet I do not feel,
I have a nose, yet I cannot smell,
I have a mouth, yet I cannot taste,

I am alone with myself,
In my own personal hell,
I do not know if I am alive,
Or, if I even exist

The only thing within my soul is darkness,
There is no light for me here,
For I am shut off from the world,
And the world is shut off from me,

I feel no emotions,
I feel no feelings,
I have nobody to love,
And nobody to love me back,

I long for the touch of another,
Something to prove that I exist,
To feel the light shine within my soul,
To feel the warmth of life again

But I know that it cannot be,
For my soul is haunted by darkness,
A darkness from which I cannot escape,
A darkness that’s pulling me deeper into the unknown,
And will not let me go, not until it’s torn me apart.
