Broken Will

Is it fate that has led us to this point
Or our own broken wills?
You’ve gone missing again
Left sometime in the night
Like a ghost on the wind
You slipped away into the dark
Without even a glance back
Pulled by the current
That flows so fierce
Beneath your skin
Is it your fate to leave
Everyone who loves you?
Or is fate nothing
Compared to the strength
Of this fucking disease
A black cancer that poisons
Everything you see
All that you touch
It turns me to dust
I’ve pulled and pushed
For so long, trying in vain
To carry you through it all
Should you have died long ago?
Lost to the cracked pavement
Of the streets in that town
To the burnt and forsaken houses
That stare blankly
In a vigil over the loss
Of so much integrity
Where will you turn up this time?
On the phone acting as though
Nothing ever happened?
Behind the bars
At the county lock up?
In the hospital sobbing with
Empty promises
That it will never happen again?
Or in a coffin
With life lost
Behind those beautiful eyes
That would be
More than I could bear
I wish I could sleep
But my eyes won’t shut
The rain outside doesn’t stop
I leave a light on
I don’t know why
I guess when it goes out
My hope is gone

I have had more than a few nights like this, thought I would try to get the feelings out with my words.
