- What Matters
I strolled along the murky road
Where blackened ashes lay dead and cold
Of decisions made and left untold
Of verdicts altered in my withhold.
As I cleared away the cryptic haze,
I fell into a familiar daze
A mighty feud remained a maze
Ensnaring me with its bewitching gaze.
Still, I could not conclude at last
Perpetual feelings for the past
For the mirth that was so vast
Or for the treason that caused the blast.
Musing over the thoughts undone
I evoke the memories I shun
Beloved days that yield to stun
For the lax companions tarry for none.
I contended the trance till I breathed no more
Narcotic rasps as I fell to the floor
Doubled down in rage I swore
To leave alone the unending war.
Time can pass and drift away,
Yet nothing can quench the heart’s decay
Shriveling, listless, void many a day
Forsaken to keep the pain at bay.
I battled the savage beast within
Striking him down and taming my sin,
Entombed beyond the shadow’s kin
Afar it lay, for my life to begin.
