Into the abyss of my mind

It’s cold and dark depths


I had felt their cold fingers

Not too long ago, but

Hadn’t wanted to accept, to


The hourglass is empty

It’s sands run dry

Suffocating me as I strive to


I cannot see the meaning

The turns had long past


Yet I continue to exert

All effort, to resist the draw

Of a loss that has, my mind,


And I will hold fast

To memory and to faith

Moving through life to again find
