The Dark Days

all past love and joy...
faded...
happiness...
a mere memory...

the nightmares will be lost
yet...resentment lights,
while immobile
the burning feelings...

eventually the flames...
they will...
die down...
but along with them...

who you are...
what you are...
a shadow
of its former self.

sadness overtakes,
bitterness eats away,
what will be left
besides scars?

the dark hole you are in...
digs deeper...
every...single...
day.

suffering day by day...
night by night...
skin-deep suffering,
alone.

one day it will end...
it will be numb...
but...imagine the feeling...
nothing.

wasting away...
thoughtless...
eyes staring forever into...
nothing...blank...

you remain submerged...
until...someone reaches towards you,
and that gesture alone
saves you.

however...
the pieces do not fit...
they have to be
rearranged...

thus...
you change...
never again
the same
