As Long as I Stay

January 18, 2018

Why haven't I given up yet
You skepticize
After all this strife
And I'll tell you why
It's because deep down, in a dim crevice
I wait, with knee jerking fear
The day I stop being me
And words squeeze from my fingertips
Dry as a fossil bone
Dull as a rusty knife
And my eyes slide over the things I used to love reading
With barely any inflection
And my passion disintegrates into saw dust
That is what has kept me going for so long
Because even if feeling everything is almost too much for a human
Feeling nothing usurps it all
