AN EVERLASTING FEAR



Spinning.

My world is spinning.

From where I sit

I can see the blur that once was

Ordered life and everything

In its place.



Hiding.

My soul is hiding.

Inside my mind I feel it

All coming undone and

No one seems to care.



Depression worms its way through the cracks

And enters through doors

Subconsciously willing to be open.



Darkness.

Darkness spreads like wildfire

Over dried up plains of what used to be

Life.



And while the world continues to spin

Effortlessly in its orbit,

My mind continues to allow the sadness to enter.



The darkness, combined with the

Bitter taste of failure,

Over powers the sweet that was

Happiness.



Hollow.

I am hollow,

For everything has left me,

Along with my joy,

And left me paralysed with the continuous presence of

Fear.



An everlasting fear.
