Following Darkness

I followed him,
Thinking I would find the answer,
The answer to a worryless life.
He did not have it.

I followed him,
When life was empty
And I was lonely,
And afraid to live alone.

I followed him,
In spite of his objections,
Because I loved him,
Because he loved me.

I followed him,
Through the darkness:
The hidden pain
And hidden suffering.

I followed him,
Ignoring the signs
That told me of my future,
The soon-to-be future of failure.

I followed him,
Blindly, not knowing our problems.
I was too happy see clearly.
The true troubles that he didn’t tell me.

I followed him,
Until death did he part.
Leaving me to sort out his mistakes.
Alone, with new worries and problems.

I followed him,
Not wanting to be
Alone in this world,
To the grave.
