I see my dreams outside my window

In a sky that flickers between light and dark.

I see the Heavens above me glow

And when I smile, they fall apart.

I feel a ball and chain wrapped around my feet

As I pull myself further into my future.

Any moment there's a chance I might fall in defeat

And then, my life vanishes in a blurr.

I can taste smoke and soot on my tongue

And not even mouthwash can help.

I can taste the same blood of the corpses I dance among

As my heart and existence melts. 

I can hear the screams of my children

As they yell “Daddy, daddy please.”

They can hear me call them my original sin

Whether than blessing born within Eden's leaves.

I always thought I was ready for what this life brings

But this life of a writer no longer treats me with care.

I can touch the sky in my dreams

If they hadn't  turned into nightmares.

It might be time I give up.
