Searching for light at the end of a dark tunnel.

In my cortex of discontent

Lies realisation;

A misguided direction

Without light

Yet, lies in my mind's eye

Hope! A flicker on the candle I carry.


Smoke simmers

With every thought,

Every fume

Consumes every tentative breath,

Until all that exists

Are converging clouds

That equate my tongue.
