    Night has fallen
    Lasting for eternity
    As I witness
    The all-consuming darkness
    Envelope all I see
    Melancholy flavor
    Dance along my poetic taste buds
    Awakening me
    Filling me
    With despair
    For all I see is
    Is the result
    Of selfish exaltation
    The “all about me syndrome”
    Replacing
    “Love thy neighbor as thy self”
    Misplaced priorities
    plus displaced obligations
    equals
    neglected responsibilities
    to coexist peacefully
    I tire from this so-called spectacle of life
    Wishing that my eyes would be plucked
    From its sockets
    For I see nothing good
    Nothing edifying
    Nothing worthwhile
    And for the first time in my existence
    I close my eyes…
