Darkness Creeps

By @Joyous_One

I hear you talking in the background

But it may not be enough for me

My thoughts are still strong

Always asking me why I’m here

It never ending

I feel small and unchanged

I feel like the wall

Just plain

Sees everything

But is nothing

I’m the background

While everything passes me by

I’ve faded into dark and unknown

I’ve become the unknown

The not wanted anymore

For all I say , I’ve never done

Everyone is done

So here I am plain as the wall

The background of nothing

The unknown

The unwanted
