As he laid his head
against the cold cement
strangers and life passed him by.
No one notices him laying there.
Once successful and respected,
now free from that burden
to live in the shadows of his former self.
A person no one sees or cares about.

Respect and pride long gone
he wakes to a warming wetness
laying in waste he produced.
Slowly putting his head in his hands
his dignity the last to leave,
cries himself to sleep
having nightmares of all the yesterdays
that once were new and bright.Now a blur.

Memories twisted into nightmares
that now attack from within.
Ghoulish visions of what was so pure
invading his thoughts are evil visions
of a life so bright,now darkened by shadows
waiting to take what is left of a broken life.
The shadows draining the last of his soul
through the cold hard cement.

This was the darkest void imaginable Millions of
screaming tortured souls.Reliving mistake after
mistake. Again for an eternity.
The shadows have stolen another soul to torture
Screams are everywhere.There for the shadows pleasure
Reeking from this void,is a stench like no other.
The souless body remains unnoticed by strangers
who cared not about him before.... even less now.
Update: That is sad Cilla,,,,There are new faces every week or every day in fact
