Over The Hump & Back to Life

by vermismeridiem

You see yourself

Bend and break

Into a million pieces—

 

Your dreams and aspirations

Deep in trenches—

 

For moments,

You begin to witness

Your withering:

A gradual,

Irrevocable decease

 

Of the once

Vastly immense

Well—

From which

Rose your strength;

 

Sets of spines

For

The Heavy load.

 

You see it,

This indefinite

Blackening

Of

The Sun—

 

The last breath

Of air

Escaping your lungs.

 

But

 

Do bite

Your

Tongue—

 

You may just

Forget

This dark void

And live

To See

Another Dawn.
