Nevermore

I should never have asked
The questions
Whilst I lived in fear of the
Answers I'd receive.

I should never have
Accepted lies
When the truth was there
For me to believe.

I should never have doubted
What I knew,
What I was sure was true.
Now there's no reprieve.

For now it hurts more
Than it ever could have done before.

I should never have slept,
Not whilst the
Nightmares slumber by my side,
And my dreams and mercy grieve.

I should never have allowed
The sun to set.
My worst fears confirmed.
And now my hope will leave.

I should never have let this come to pass.
So now I wound myself with shattered glass.
