All I could do was watch,
As if it had nothing to do with me.
Useless, bloated body,
Avalanching peaks dipping in my valley’s,
Asymmetrical pieces carved from my breast,
Burying this heart in another creature’s chest.
Screams echo empty tragedy
In vibrant, blinking reds
Breaking across my retina’s,
Burning into my memories
Another unmitigated failure.
Time erases nothing,
But diminishes everything.
I threw away my everything
For the chance at a fraction,
A singular moment to dream…
But I lost.
And I keep losing.
I stopped trying, but the failures keep on coming.
And it hurts… and I want it to stop…
I don’t care about dreaming anymore… I just want the nightmares to end…
