Just an illusion
punctuated by fevers
an empty canvas
in fading light
a dull ache to my heart

Darkening shadows
already lost
deep under the water
white, puckering scars magnified
a strange sensation of growing pain

It's harder than I imagined,
to be alone
complete, white silence
like a blanket covering me
it wouldn't be without pain
