Man Lost

Man Down

It wasn’t personal.

A violent act.

“If it weren’t you…..”

But

It was

It was me

Struggling to breath

Writhing to escape

Finally

That choice

To alter one’s gravity

Not so much surrender

As acceptance

Baring such weight

Mind

Slipped away

Separated

Fractured perhaps

Unable to grasp

The brutality

Of what was happening

Patches of memory

The tapes

All unwanted

Buried deep

Yet fester nonetheless

Decade’s pass

Now Erupting

Intruding

Forcing to reconcile

To face the weight

once more

To allow my soul to rest.
