Edge of sanity,

Desperately seeking

Redemption.

Torn

By indecision,

Succumb

To rage

Feared most.

Grip on myself slips,

Leaves me to face myself.

Look to stars -

Suffer.

Look away -

Suffer.

Vision of

Heaven and hell.

Both rejecting

And yearning

For my predicament.

Wish this was a dream,

One I could escape.

Somewhere my soul

Had shattered,

Heart had been pierced

In a million places.

Salted tears

Course down pale cheeks,

What had I done when

The world fell apart?

Clutch my head

Against the pain.

Scream.

Had forgotten

Something long ago.

No longer a person

Capable of smiles.

Shell born amidst

Imperfection.

Lost. Incomplete.
