A.J. Huffman… Maudlin

 

Maudlin

Mood
descends
like curtains on a final
act of some Shakespearean
tragedy.
Heavy
is the feeling that echoes
as silence. Suffocating
darkness, verging on impenetrable. Shadows
of belligerent light seep through.
Remnants of hope, unreachable,
taunt eyes that long to become

accustomed to the dominant

gloom.
