"Your dreams only become intangible when you stop reaching" ~me ;)

For a heart that aches with every beat,
The speed of light is not fast enough,
For a moment to pass...
For all lights seem dim and distant.
Futures seem bleak,
and having to look past even the next second,
Consumes me with dread and terror. I can't see past the pain
That lurks within every corner
and crescent of me,
Every shakey breath I force.
I long for escape,
But no aide comes to rescue me
From these fellow dwellers of heavy shadows.
I fear not the painless escape
So formally known as death,
But I need it.
Yearn for it.
Because there, no misery will follow.

This poem has absolutely no relevance to my life or state of mind... I just got bored one day and this was the end result. I hope you enjoy and feel free to interpret as you will. And comments would be greatly appreciated =]
