Letting Go

The darkness

seeps in,

a plague

of corrupted memories

The poison

tastes vile,

Making me choke

on the suffocating past

Did I die

along the way,

Running through

that field of pain?

Or did I

just lose myself,

To the inner demon

ripping me apart?

A savior

they say,

I shall be

for the people

Yet as I fall

down again,

I can't help but wonder

if someone will save me

My heart

an empty void,

My soul

shattered

I stand

here,

Waiting for the day

I can let go.
