Into the darkness
It's hard to breathe here,
You’re suffocating in toxicity.
You try to blink back tears and can taste their salt,
wounds may heal but scars remember their own pain.
You want escape so you seek refuge in the safe corners of your brain.
You feel yourself slipping deeper but you fight back and at times,not only survive- you thrive.
But you know this will be short-lived,
For the shadows
always creep back in- stealing the light,
And you’re dragged back down into darkness like night,
Into those places where the pain runs deep,
Into memories like nightmares that won't allow you to sleep.
