Just when happiness came knocking, my world plunged into darkness once again.
The light dimmed, the ephemeral smile didn't reach my eye, disillusioned I felt.
The fleeting glimpse of Utopia, rudely snatched
In its place stood nothing but shambles
Despair and arid hope its only companion
Mournful cries wrenching the night sky
Night it seems, but day it is
Light never to touch it again
Tears dry up, red eyes stare incriminating
Resentment wells inside
Loathing and ire close
Eyes shut in patient pondering
Control flailing however
Finally, an anguished cry escapes
Purgatory in sight
Reach it I will
Conquer this I must
For now though, I seethe
In blatant misery!
