Just One More

you are strong, you are safe, you are okay

and other lies I tell myself as I lay

huddled into an ever-shrinking ball

That is somehow still as taut as a high wire
each day these shadows

creep noiselessly into my brain

uninvited, unwanted and yet

So comfortably at home

in the corridors of my sprawling brain 
the darkness has resided 

in my soul for a billion years

since I was just stardust,

since the first time that

A heart was broken.
the human heart is only built

for so much pain and

everyday I teeter on that 

perilous cliff
just one more day

just one more chance

just one more failure and

one step closer

to eternity.
