Sitting here in the dark

watching for the fires last spark.


Breeze blows under the door

ruffles the papers on the floor.


Another day has silently past

you know for sure it’s not the last.


In the end you made your choice

not that it’s a reason to rejoice.


To hurt anyone was never your plan

but you started to think you weren’t a man.


Unable to provide for your family

you started to behave irrationally


They tried to placate you

soon realised there would be no break through.


You left to give them peace

so they could get off their knees.


Alone now you wish you could rewind

to a time you had control of your mind.

night fire burning sparks

  2. If that was the case then honesty is surely the best policy. I’ve got one hand held high to show everyone our progress, and my other hand reaches down and out, waiting for someone to grasp it.
