World


a lonely man stares at a compelling vision of nothingness

consumed by the big empty, he retreats from awareness, alone

patient no more, he waits again always awake and never here

a world of his own, he would share, and yet no one else can see

will he be here, forever lonely, afraid, secluded, happy, insane

is it fate, or does he control his destiny, is it by whim or choice

who is sane, and who is not, is it we who live in a world of pain

or is it he, who lives in a world of his design, world of his desires

shall he sit forever, in charge of what he sees, who he would love

perhaps it is he then, who shall succeed, with the power to create

he who makes his rules, and plays with only those that he chooses

it is a game to him, reality meaning nothing inside his mind's eye

so, he sits and he stares at a compelling vision of nothingness, alone

As ever, I am left in awe at your depths.
I know that world you're in. I love the way you linked the first and last lines, and the whole way you structured it. Thanks for the repost!

Yes, but a warning...
I have recieved a few challenges lately, and feel the humid breath of my demons brathing down my neck!
Darkness, shall return.
(But K- you always get to see my soft side!)
