Nothing in life is ever monochrome.
I discovered that a long time ago,
And with all such lessons,
I learned it the hard way.
Dark cannot exist without light.
Night can’t occur without day.
Despair can’t flourish without hope.
I couldn’t live without her,
She can’t survive without me.
She was meant to be my protector.
It was us against the world.
Instead, she became my worst fear.
I allowed that despair to grow and fester.
I let it mar me, then, almost destroy me.
I realized something had to give.
This time, there is no turning back.
When the siren calls to you,
You unwillingly answer.
Question is… Would I survive the fall?
