Apathy

Fire. fire. Pain. fear.
Anger red hot boils over
Ignored
Cools off
Simmers under the skin

Skin hardens
Fire
Trapped inside
Kill it. Kill it.
Freeze it
Numb

Ice. Ice. Soothe the misery.
Gets colder, colder
Everything slows.

Feeling stops:
Both hope and despair
Suffocate
Like a candle flame
Helplessly Snuffed Out

The war was almost over.
Small steps towards the light
But impatience grew
And froze it all
Turning everything gray

Spreads to the core
Frostbite overtakes
the Soul







Apathy permeates,
creates
internal suicide.
