shackle by the dreams that haunt me

trapped in a cold reality

I find myself drenched in adversity


unsure of who I am

searching for the man inside my soul

afraid my identity is the story untold

so this page I soak in ink

escaping the jaws of defeat

but still I fear the loneliness

of not having you here knowing

if you left me I will die

in my sleep

eternal rest

returning to the essence

no longer to be…
