one foot
in front of
the other
one foot in
front of
the
other one
foot
in
front
of
the
other...

then why
is it so hard
to walk
away from you
when it is
just
onefootinfrontoftheother.

it chants
in my mind
endlessly, it
is night.
no lights, no
traffic,
just me and
my wretched mind.

it plays a
cruel
joke, and wills
my feet to
stop.
rooted to
the ground, it
refuses
to budge.

ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER!

my scream
cuts through
silence -
your
silence
through my
heart.

why is it
so hard to walk
away from you. just
onefootinfrontoftheother
from darkness
to darkness.

i am
afraid at my
helplessness. i
am unable
to walk. rooted
i am.

for i am afraid.

these darkness
without
your presence. i
long to
linger by your
side, a little while
longer.

one
foot
in
front
of
another...

i cry at my foolishness.
