Sinking Like A Stone

the dreadful the dreaded
loneliness
tugging and tearing
at the fabric of life

heartlessly
shredding every vestige
of hope

inviting
darkness to invade
every inner nook and cranny
with despair

the emptiness

the nothingness

the cold 
clammy familiarity
of futility

Take me
take me

I cannot
stay 
afloat
