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.

Allies. Partners.

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?
