In Passing

by Kyle G

I'm not hungry now
The darkness swallows me as they eat.
I'm starving now
With a pain I can't defeat.
I'm sleeping in my wake now
A dreary ghost among these farewell flies.
I'm exhausted in my rest now
A pale sight with heavy eyes.
I'm hollowing this prison now
With weight to press me down in bed.
Heavy hearts, they lighten now
Just wait and I'll escape their head.
I'm vanished now
Grave impermanence where I once lay.
I'm eternal in this soiled dream
Living till the end of days.
