October winds proved to be
too much for me.

I retreat, chilled by distant
dark memory,

Into layers thick with fleece
forgetfulness.

This time I have no verse,
no song, no rhyme.

I find myself lost, out of
place, out of time.

Carved smile, all rotting orange,
I'm hollowed out.

Finding faith a candle snuffed,
I'm plagued by doubt,

Disintegrate, disappear,
am swept away.

I can relate to these verses from beginning to end. Especially
"Carved smile, all rotting orange,
I'm hollowed out./Finding faith a candle snuffed,
I'm plagued by doubt"
