My Despair - Poem by RIC BASTASA

In this wilderness
This despair, night after night, I sit
In the chair of my madness
I sleep in the bed of my loneliness
My hands at the back of my head
Weighing bitter thoughts
Trying to figure out
Where is the exit
Of these all

I seek refuge in you
From the darkness of my years
I seek your light
From my cabinet days
You are my innermost desire
You will be my eternal torment
