A Beloved Friend

Darkness is not coloured blue

It’s pitch black

With no light hues

No dark shadows

You’re all alone

Strangely though

It feels like home

Wrapped around you

Like a beloved friend

But in this friendship

No happiness blends

Fake laughter

False smiles too

Tears of sadness

Making deep dark pools

Thoughts like voices

Inside your head

Did you say that?

Or was it inside your head?

Sleep deprivation

Clouds your mind

The sensible thoughts

You cannot find

Sleep finds you

During the day

In that sleep

You want to stay

All of a sudden

Light creeps in

“Hey my friend, where’ve you been?”
