Ethan Daniel

Trauma

Darkness engulfs the room I lay

Like my mind shadows prevail.

Alone I stay for my sins, the pittance I pay.

One breath at a time, I exhale.

My mind at unease and my heart like a dray

The nausea of life, my dreams it impales.

 

You held out your hand offering acceptance

And I let go of my past wanting protection,

My soul jealous I walk alone in repentance,

Bury my joy as I fear your eternal rejection.

 

Like a shadow at noon you return to slumber

Leaving me alone, drowning in absence.

Grab my hand the traumas outnumber,

Without you my heart surrendered.
