The Endless Path (Part IV)
gives way to the same routine,
yet another day in this retched despair.
I still wish I could take it all back,
the blood, sweat and tears I have lost.
My vision has become distorted,
my hope and future, now lost in yesterday.
I have returned to what was once our home,
salvaging through the debris of the past.
I came across a picture that brought forth sorrow,
a year ago today, you smiling in these arms.
What could have happened to the happiness?
Lost, and destroyed in the great fire,
Strung-out, just as me and you are today.
This won’t continue on much longer, I hope,
This beautiful loss, continues to control me.
I keep walking, keep searching, it’s all I can do,
until the weight on my shoulders becomes too much.
I will lay down and attempt to slumber yet again,
left with the forgotten visions of you in my head.
Dawn breaks, time for this cycle to repeat.
I awaken in exhaustion, bathe in the creek,
Prepare for the road ahead again.
With what little motivation I behold,
I keep my feet upon this endless path….
"I don't want to be just another person, I want to be god."
