AGAIN!!! Sleep is intruded upon by the vicious shadow Violating normalcy, the maelstrom begins. Begging for fingers of surgical precision to penetrate my skull So the extrication will be quick and successful. But no, No, NO!. It’s never that simple. Twist and writhe… in denial… it won’t last. Heat from the tears confirm the unending escalation. I crave relief, once and for all. There is one way, But the ugliness of that decision, in it’s entirety, Will rear it’s head forever, upon the innocent. I will tolerate, persevere, survive… because I must.
