couple alone

Trying to keep it straight
And not sigh for you so easily.
I play our songs as I sing along
Losing my voice beats losing my mind.
Night comes quickly like a veil
Covering and protecting me
Whilst also showing me choices.
Some lead to completion
Others to destruction
It’s a maze of confusion I’m slowly traversing.
Lost in my own head
Watching vultures fly by
Slowing down to check on me.
Fly away Hurt!
Fly away Pain!
I’m not giving up
I’m not finished
I’m not defeated.
