Requiem For Me - Poem by Daniel Richards

Two steps, down a spiral staircase,
Musky air aroma,
A place so dark and daring
Chilly night time weather
Cold metal holds my hand
As I caress the winding banister
Rickety like aging timber,
Stone washed walls
Cob webs of woven deceit
Declining with rising temperature
Echoed footsteps brings a sense
Of foreboding, with tenacity
This you override and become entangled,
By the slow winding decline
The scent of smoke fills you lungs
Euphoria erupts, explosions of unwilling lust
Your veins boil, your mind asunder
Your heart beating a solo requiem
Final steps before departure
One final dose and clarity now plundered
Lonely except an itch
Laying is a body soulless lifeless but one thing remains
Your image your face
Is now all that is left
One last dose, now you’re dead
Anti-depressants once your friend
Toxicity grasping your dreams,
Mood stabilizers, steal your thoughts
Never meant to die, just took too much to stop the crying
Now im lifeless in a declining spiral
A one way stair case too decay
Loss of all feeling so for me have a nice day
