This is devastation

An impact most severe

Which has left me hollow

And far too insecure


Metal in my veins

Poison for my brain

Driving me insane

The Brooding face torments me

Shame and guilt; my only company

Holding me back from being me

The sickness is crippling

Debilating insanity

Will I ever be well again?

Can I ever face my friends?

My pride has crumbled beneath my feet

Disconnected from who I am

Severed, from his deceit

I’ve lost all sense of purpose

Is this my fault

Do I deserve this?

I’m haunted by waking nightmares

Will I ever again reach my potential

Will I ever find peace

Spirit, guide me there
