The Abyss

Tags: insomnia

It slays my heart
And rips at my torn soul,
This dark abyss of nothingness.

It takes hold,
But I fight it.

I feel it following me
Like a shadow I cannot escape.

Sometimes I can fight it off,
Prevent it from consuming me
And turning my mind dark.

Then there are times,
Where my strength fails me
And leaves me unprotected.

In those times,
I have no defense.
It wraps me into cold, unyielding arms
And pulls me close.

And all I can do
Is take a breath...

And sink.
