11 Years Ago


Descent*
It`s hard to say
When it all began
Or if it always was
From the beginning
This descent
Inward
Into the cold void of self

It`s hard to see
Just when the worm turned
When the heart grew hard
Old
A light at the end of the tunnel
But that light is behind me now
Getting smaller
Lost

It`s hard to accept
Being left behind
By you
By me
Powerless to follow...to cry out
Unworthy
Of the luxury of tears

It`s hard to say
How it will all end
Or if it even matters
When all is said and done
Tired
Of wandering the road alone
Forever inward
Away from the light
