The Story Ends

I stood beside the fire
Just to embrace its warmth
One step closer
And the sensation intensify

My brain tells me to stay away
My mind tells me to take another step

To surrender completely

Two-Way Street

One day
I took my mind for a ride

It said all kinds of things–
From bloodlust to forgiveness

It believes in the darkest corner of humanity
Because of the lost things

It believes in the moments
Because good things can happen

Everything is for survival
While enjoying some peace

Just Living

I don’t know what kept me

alive all this time.

Of all the heartbreak, agony, anger,

and the tears I’ve shed

I don’t know why I’m still alive

Hope?

Faith?

Maybe it’s just survival instinct

So I can live

with or without shame

While being a bystander
