Lifeless light

Eyes become

         keen adjusted

    to the dark,

adapted to the

familiar      absence of light.

the moon

    in dismay is

a companion

                     of mine.

celestial object

surrounded        by sky

in toneless thought,

the hushed sound

       of a whimper

is an animal

slithering on all fours.

Authors note: The way that I decided to format this poem is intentional. The indents and spaces I made while writing this was to create a feeling of being detached from reality, and to create a "choppy" feeling while reading the words because that is what my thought process is like on a daily basis.
