What doesn't kill you...

Once again
the life that I once knew has ended;
and I’m left a weak, emotional wreck.
Nothing about this has made me stronger,
I’m just that much closer to the edge.
The path that I followed was already bumpy
with its’ jagged rocks cutting at my feet.
How many times must I trip and fall down
before I just break,
lying there in defeat?
Slipping into the shadows of my mind,
where these new nightmares play a constant loop in my head.
I’m fighting and screaming my way through it
but I’m so close to giving in before the end.
There’s only so many times you can pick yourself back up
- only so much shit you can take;
before it all just gets too much to deal with
and you turn to other ways to escape.

Haven’t written anything in ages so I apologise for this poor effort.

In some areas I’ve lived more than others;
In some I haven’t lived at all.

    I have been there too many times in my past and have come to dead end roads that cause deep concern. Yet some how I get through it. I don’t reflect too much on yesterday and very little on tomorrow (although I look forward to tomorrow) I tend to focus on the now and change it.
    Keep writing as it is part of the cure. Mark

    I’ve been that through that myself in the last few years. Things are changing now – whether the nightmare is over; hard to say – everything is an experience, becomes a memory, a part of us. Whether we can all get out of it – it does depend on ourselves and some luck. Don’t stop and keep moving forward.
