Zombied Eyes

Staring at the ceiling
Sleepless and alone
Wondering why I'm here
How I got to this place
Why such an empty home
Such an empty life
Nowhere to run
In this world where I exist
Nothing to resist the temptation
Of oblivion
Of the end
When sleep escapes
When dreams cease
My starvation
Of affection
Nothing to stave off
Living death
I've become a zombie
An undead
Living by the day
By the night I stare up
As life wages
Take their toll
