Lost in Illusion

I sought for solace
In a place where it could not be found
My life, without rhythm or sound
Has lost its pace

Engrossed in illusion
I pursued shadows
Leaving behind, the concrete
Which was authentic

The muses have left me
No inspiration to befriend
My light has turned into darkness
I'm unable to compose the poem of my life

The poetry I recite
The verses I write
Have lost rhyme
Like a song out of time

I feel the sorrow
As my life turn sour
I feel the pains
As if I'm bound in chains
