Forced backwards

uncertain fuels the breakdown
butchered goals at the whims of others
chances risked pay out gold
that fades with the dawn
pulled back
skin no longer inured
heart no longer fatalistic
no longer adapted to the caustic environment
Instead
burn
as if the time never was
lost in the false storms
at the mercy
of the merciless

    Blessings to you. Sorry for my clumsiness yesterday. I didn’t mean to be insensitive and most definitely didn’t mean any disrespect.
    Be well and I hope this week has something good in store for you 😔
