Tomorrow

by Teatart

Where did the sun go?
It was here yesterday
It rose like normal
And set in a flame of colours

Yesterday
Its rays warmed my cool skin
Its brilliance
Left black dots before my eyes

But today
My world is in shadow
Cold, stark, dull
No light to draw the night away

The darkness amplifies my despair
Gives wings to my hopelessness
And claws to my rejection
It feeds the starving monster within

I hide behind closed doors
Praying that tomorrow,
Tomorrow you will be back
And the struggle will subside again

Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow

The last fight

by Teatart

I search
I find
I lose
I cry

The cycle continues
Never-ending
Infinite in it sadness
Complete in its continuity

I want it to end
I want it to be different
Too much heartache
So much pain

Day after day
I have chosen to endure
Against all odds
My head held high

But my resolve has grown weary
Without an ending in sight
My sword is as a burden
Fallen limply at my side

On one last chance
My hopes I pin
If happiness be the spoils
Then I’ll choose to fight
