What Goes Up, Must Come Down

Loneliness, deceitful and Cunning

Knowing your worst fears

Preying upon your doubts

Wait for it to pass

claustrophobic and anxious

Soon loneliness will become sadness

leading only to despair


the light is gone.

Like the flip of a switch,

The darkness rolls like a wave

It fears nothing, but for light

Mine unfortunately extinguished

I don’t fight it this time.

No kicking, no screaming.

No search for a candle

just lay down and hold my breath

air is thick with abandonment

No one is going to come for you.

Waiting and hoping extends suffering

You must simply close your eyes...

And wait...
