Self Induced Solitude

Within this dampened and loathly dungeon  
The inconsolable flicker of plastic lamp stutters ,
It's inconsistent glimmer cackles and mutters  
A sadistic reminder ; an inaudible percussion  
The lurking emptiness , untouched by another  
Stagnant air , merely gracing my tasteless tongue  
A second hand gift to these worn blackened lungs  
Elongating contentment ; my desire left to smother  
Calloused vision corroded through monotony  
De-sensitized inhibitors begging for upheaval ;
Dormant and yearning , for a fresh fun retrieval  
Minutes turn to moments; glimpses to unknown hours ;
While this melancholic portrayal ,amuses and provides
A temporary refuge for my discontent to reside
