Asleep, tucked in
Peace, anything but.
Heart mid beat, suspended
Hands frantically reach out to the wall
Find a railing?
To stop the unexpected fall
Into life and mind’s dark, dark, story
No light, no merry, not here!
Free falling; in the darkness she gasps
Stifling her, suffocating
She tries to grab on to what she knew –
But they turn away from her
Confused anguish, she turns tired eyes onto herself
Ceasing to find the railing
She let it engulf her
Pain, a soul shattering pain
It couldn’t get any worse, she figured
Alas, she didn’t understand
A shattered being can be shattered ever more –
Repeatedly, for eternity.

There are good things; but we now know how infrequent the good things are in coming, and how easily all that is treasured can be lost. And even with all the amazing people you surround yourself with, your soul is heavy, lost and tired.
