I can feel it
A barely hidden momentum
To my life
No matter what pleasures arrive

It haunts me
This chill in my bones
That no amount of sunshine and laughter
Can remove

I am falling
It seems as natural as gravity
And I am too weak to fight it

Back again down a path
Well-trodden and hated
What gives?
What happened?

Nothing has
This is an eternal dark energy
Burning cold in my soul

Takes me away from you
Into me
Too tired
To climb back out

My only consolation
I know it will end
And you’ll be there
To help me back up again
