Moonless Night

The dark walls
Of jungle
Push from
All sides
Pushing from
All directions
At the same time
The color
Of its darkness
So heavy
With despair
Smothered
In depression
I gaspe
For fresh air
as I roll
From side to side
In search
Of a glimmering light
Until slumber
Claims the darkness
Of the moonless
Night…
