Silent Gloom

Silent gloom precipitates the darkness
Of solitudinal thoughts and dry eyed tears

Led there on the floor
Led bare with a lead stare
Mouth open;
Heart drumming;
Refusing to breathe

Silence? For a moment was that silence?
A silence shattered by necessary writhing
Awkward movements are a bell call for pacing
Pace the mental case externally

Then in a mirror so stands before him
Naked but for tragic beauty
Shadowy outlines echo of monsters
The reflection of his own worst enemy

Leave your thought.
