Shivering in Darkness

We are shivering in darkness
shouldering our burdens
with weary resignation
waiting for dawn to come.

The cursing voices
between our own ears
drone out any encouragement
that our fellows may be speaking.

It’s not as easy as we thought
to coast without the meds
or the smouldering sticks
of slow sucking suicide.

All the history piles up
clogging the aether
with sludgy remains
of ancient despair.

Steel Sky Season
is closing on itself
locked and shuddering
to a rusting halt.

Waiting out the night
in the ruins of yesterday
the promise of today
seems a bitter lie.

But I keep the faith
beyond belief
and keep standing
without relief.
