You awake from a restless sleep.
Immediately you can sense it; there is no safety here.
An agonizing lump forms in your throat;
anger rolls between your temples like hungry thunder.
Aching tension rests between your shoulders,
as your eyes struggle to see more than broken shapes.
If regret had a taste, it’s perched upon your lips,
and all that you can breathe is the sour scent of failure.
Thoughts comes waltzing in ridden with detriment,
while pity admonishes every glance you give to hope.
Your heart begs for just one free moment to beat softly;
it will not come tonight.
