Darkness, my only companion

At present, I have only one companion
— The unknown darkness
Which is everywhere around me.
There’s no light
Only the creepy darkness
Which haunts me like time does.
The hands of the time, I can hear
Running faster than light
Leaving me behind.
Ah! I am a slow runner.
My heart beats without getting tired
And making me realize what life is.
I can hear the faint noises
Coming from my brain
But I pay no heed to them.
The dark blanket wrapped around me
Makes my heart warm.
I can smell the aroma of loneliness
Floating in the air.
