The One Who Kept Me Company


I'm unable to enjoy a day as today.
It's always been away;
A failure to attain the void
In the mind's pathways.

As Time passed, I became
The same as those insane—
Wishing that miracles would change
Life's undoubtedly cruel games.

Happiness—we're both going down.
It was Sadness who stayed
When you were not around.
I'm staring at these lights of the town,
Wondering of those who played
With you, as I drowned.
