It’s dark with no moonlight.

No stars to guide me

No helping hand to lead me

Can’t do this, not again, not again

Can’t, can’t, can’t..echoes

Strangled sighs give way to frustration

Been down this road

I know this road

Deep breath, another strangled sigh

This has to’s stopped before.

Deep breath

Did this before, got through this

Smooth sigh

Eyes narrow, brain sharpens

One step, two steps..forward.

Like before, this shit ain’t got nothin’ on me. Time to make this suffering my bitch.

Moonlight returns.

Stars shine bright.

The helping hand has been there all along. My own.
