Darkness closing in….

My world, crashing down, falling, broken

Inside the heart torn, bleeding beneath the skin

Fires extinguished, passions dimmed to embers,

Strength gone, the drive to rise, the will to power…..


Been here before but each time feels

So much worse, so destructive, terminal

each time brings me one step closer

One heartbeat from the edge of reason….


No recourse, no way back, the only option

To fight when all hope is gone, when fighting is futile

The greatest battles the ones you can not win

But chose to fight anyway, the battles that are already….
