darkness leading me to you

trapped
in this four wall
apartment
lingering scents
of her
phantom perfume

i lay in bed
as the rains come down
keeping
the sky aloft
with the tears
that
drown out
the world

sylvia and hank
red faced
screaming
to wake me
from this
shattered
dreamthistle

as i never really
figured out
what this whole mess
is all about

in this darkness
that leads me
to you

i am trapped
in this hell
of an apartment

my heart bleeds out
in this
rusted cage

as the words
call out
from deadened lips
trying to find
their way back
into the
home
that is you

this breadcrumb trail
of childish dreams
that guides me
into the darkness
in search of you
