Denial hangs over the mind like a veil,

Separating man from woe

Body from Death.

Unraveling in reality’s harsh gale.

 

Keeping the days long and the nights longer,

Consuming mind and soul

Consuming heart

Unraveling as darkness grows stronger

 

Unspoken words escape in tendrils of smoke

Swirling pain or elation

Phantoms manifest

Unraveling emotions one longed to revoke.

 

Be still oh heart, refrain from the road traveled

Lest pain follows

Despair pursues

And the heart lies completely unraveled.
