Citizen of Darkness

A frisson of excitement

Frees me

If only for a moment

From the prison

I too often

Find myself inside

Barely able to function

Forced to suffer

The pains of yesterday

How did I ever get this way?

No longer living

I survive

Having lost all zest for life

citizen of Darkness

Since I was banished from the Light


Response to the Word of the Day Challenge prompts: barely,  yesterday, nationalfrisson and zest
