In defeat

Burdened
Heavy i lay
In love
In lies
In expectations
In truth
In giving
In trust
In deceit
In defeat
Motionless
I move forward
With a fractured heat
Alone

darkness consumes

it pulls me down
again
influenced by existence
canalised by my past
this darkness consumes
my present, everyday
i breathe, it breathes
with me
i awe at its depth
awaken to a different beat

sometimes, i let her 
take me
for hours i grieve in
this despair
a place that is secondary
it is from this nature
i emerge
renewed.
