an inescapable numbness

building upon my heart

devouring me from the inside

and tearing me apart

feeling choked

a little short of breath

and instead of light and laughter

all I feel is death


the death of my future

slowly slipping away

the death of my self esteem

I tossed out yesterday

and the wretched hold of emptiness

rising from the grave


my armor’s torn

my glaive worn

and beneath the layers of heavy rust

my resolve lies crumbled in the dust


you can’t escape

you can’t escape

the demons whisper in my ear

as they crawl past my defenses

and colour me in fear.
