Faith (January 14, 2015)

Like a shotgun blast
My emotions are
Scattered
before me.

That tangents off
In all directions
At once.

Leaving me
Feeling vulnerable
To the slightest
Emotional breeze
Across my soul.

As the tears flow
At the gentlest
Of touch
Upon my heartstrings.

Smothering remains
Of blackened holes
Once contained
My burnt out eyes
Stare blankly.

And I wonder
Why bother.

As I slip away
With every breath
I take.

Into the embrace
Of darkness.
