Torch in Pitch Black

The tears trail out
the seams of your eyes
and fall back behind
all of your sobbing strides.
You walk imperfect
but who’s to decide
what perfect is?
Cause I know it’s a lie.

And It hurts when you
say that you’re doing fine;
delusion, confusion,
and anger combined
into something much darker
than fear to not find
who you really are.
All I know is you’re dying.

I wish I could do
much more than this; trying
to iron my thoughts out
in phrases and rhyming.
I wish I could kill
all the monsters you’re fighting
but I’m just a man;
I can barely stand mine.

Please just know that
behind shadows, there’s shining,
of a sun or a moon
or a light that is blinding,
and though it is bright
it’s better than finding
your way through the dark;
where the lies are all hiding.

So take this my love,
as your torch in the night,
though I may not be there
know that you’re on my mind.
I hope this means more than
some words on some lines
cause I’m scared to death too,
but I pray that you’ll find…

You’re far from alone
I won’t leave you behind.
