Barely breathing

The words drift pass his ears His mind is too full to take anymore His eyes drift aimlessly into the dark No sleepA prisoner of consciousness Never stops thinking-but his mind is always blank Staring into space? Exploring the universe? He sits alone, barely existing Filling his lungs with empty breaths Drained of feeling Except that of the weight on his shoulders His back has reached the breaking point With one more straw, it finally gives Sleep floods his body, washing him out to sea Luring him deeper and deeper into the abyss The blade hits the floor as his body goes numb He is gone Exploring the universe Life flows from his body like a glistening stream His final breath releases him from his prison Darkness envelopes his body Silence.
