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.
