The Dull Buzz - Poem by mystery writer

Lost among a sea of monotony
A roaring buzz floats in my ear
The silent drone of the day passes,
Passes by my silent complexion
Words lost in a jungle of entangled vines
The web of lies that surround my thoughts have
Created a conundrum that even my happy place of thoughts
Cannot seem to unravel
The slightest twitch of a muscle in my face
Signaled this realization
The realization that the world had indeed
Came down a-crashing and roaring at my feet
I sat in wait for the final blow
Silence still ate away at my already putrescent flesh as I waited
And waited
And waited
The scream I had long awaited pierced the midnight air
But soon thereafter vanished
Leaving me to once again toil in the vines that were my hideous lies
Escape from this not-so foreign land was
Shall I say unfeasible
A voice did shout distantly
Very distantly
Speaking words in an effort to bring me back from the darkness of the inviting shadows
To step out into the light
Invite it in
But i know nothing of this frivolous light
Therefore the breath spent be yet another worldly waste
The dull humming resumes for my mind has made it's choice
My eyes glaze as the drumming of the beat continues without a hinge.
