I’m Failing

I don’t want to start

What I can’t finish

Words deserve completion

Sometimes I feel like a demon

I find myself between rocks and hard places

Bad decisions with sweet, sultry faces

In the valley, every stop feels like the last one

At every new start I wonder if I’m finally done

Each breath is heavier than the last

Each step is longer than the shadow preceded

Are the noxious fumes of selfishness defeating

Humanity defeats itself, present and past

I climb to the top of the highest tower

Everyone seems so infinitely small

The fence is coming down, steps appear

Scaling the wall now seems within my power

I don’t want to finish that which I did not start

Time is running out, and I’ve played my part

I feel so cold on the edge of the railing

My nerves are slow, and my hands failing

One thought on “I’m Failing

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
