A Dark One

I hear the echo from the IV drip

Staring at it only makes the echo louder.

I look around the room, just a bunch of poor souls.

Not a sound from anyone.

Beside the IV drip, the TV plays the Price Is Right.

Everyone so somber when you are so close to the end.

How do you keep fighting, when your body keeps giving up.

Eventually, our mind will surrender to the feeling.

Then nothing, an indifferent feeling about living.

That’s when you truly start to die.
