Undone

As I turn my gaze to the dark abyss,
I feel barren.
Empty

In the silence, my mind staggers to life
Tendrils of memories permeate the void
Twisting, churning;
Amassing, testing

Carefully crafted walls crumble;
The dam bursts, unleashing the past

Swept along those raging currents,
Thrown against the jagged rocks of memory
I drown in a thousand emotions;
Die from a thousand cuts

Tomorrow,
I will appear as I always have-
Spirited and strong

Tonight,
I am battered.
Broken
