I can feel myself slipping. I guess it is what was meant to be. Maybe I shouldn't try so hard to avoid the inevitable.
I watched as the months stripped away the familiar. I surrendered the suit, it was suffocating me anyway. A gift of new life was abruptly taken away, and the reaper still lingers, with unfinished business with the elderly. The dankness is choking the foundations of my home.
I have come away from all of this with my sanity intact. For now. Your love and compassion kept me anchored to the only place of solace left. I have held on tight to save myself. And in my weariness, your grip was for us both. With everything else crumbling, I fear my embrace will suffocate what sustains me.
From afar I stare into its darkness, that which consumes everything. I see no escape from it, that which feeds on light and hope. Please stay with me, my love, for I am scared. And once fear sets in, I know that it is finally upon me.
