A dark fear paints my heart
with a miserable ache leaving
me pleading for blankness to
overcome my hurting spirit.
Trembling from the weakness
that had snatched me into its
harsh and callous grasp I struggle
with the numbness defeating me.
Loneliness settles into the wounds
scratched into my soul from the
fight with black rejection
and I fade from the resentment.
Don’t awaken me up from this
eternal slumber that chances to
grant me the everlasting tranquility
that my every scar so much desires.
