Is my darkness here to stay?

Will my darkness ever go away?

I wake each day hoping, praying for light

The light is there.

I run toward it and can never get closer

I run, I’m exhausted, my legs burn…my chest burns…

I destroy all of me and all of everyone around me to get to the light

I cannot get there

I wont get there

I am bound to a darkness that makes me numb

I am bound to a mind that is decaying with each passing moment.

The heart beats

The chest rises and falls

Soon…it will all be gone.
