Should The Dark Outweigh The Light…

Hostage in my own head,

tormented by the trauma I run from.

Drowning in fear,

bleeding out heartbreak;

the false smile I wear fools everyone.

Hands around my throat,

suffocating the light in me.

Slipping into dissociation,

reveling in hollowness;

the pain might consume me whole.

Death knocks on the door,

tendency begs for another try.

Considering permanency,

Remembering love;

and should I ever go, they’d simply say,

“I did not know.”
