———-

The stares

I can’t stand them

My fears

I can’t fathom them

It all seems so uncertain

.

Days and months pass by

Every moment harder than the last

Betrayed by a kiss

Enslaved by a word

My life can never be the same

.

Peering back

Many regrets

Glancing forward

It seems so bleak

The shadows surround me

.

A moment of weakness

A life of pity

Tortured by memories

They forever haunt me

Destined to never forget
