Clarity

It was cold and airless
Emptiness surrounded me as the wind grew stronger
But I could not breathe
So I soon began to scream

My mind was in shock

It was like God halted time with only his hand
And pushed the limits of my ability
Until I finally collapsed
The church walls becoming a barrier rather than a welcome

My mind was rejected

In my head I watched the word fall
Keeping to myself to maintain the peace
Until I started shaking only to reveal
The hurt that life was creating

My mind was lost

Every word of truth gushed out with the first drop of blood
Fear tore at what I thought was real
Flooding me all at once
Leaving all mercy behind

My mind was becoming weak

As I struggled for breath
My sanity was screaming for help
The hope tried to survive
But the voices fled past the rationality of my mind

My mind began believing the worst

And like a disease
Terrifying memories will find me
Providing paralyzing pain
Marking my illness forever

Until my mind finally crumbles
