Battle Within

Aloof
Holding myself back
Distance from the pain
Want no more of that

There
I see her
Even trying to ignore
Drawn to view such grace

Pull
Resist and struggle
Sucking maelstrom of haul
Attraction breaking down last barrier

Smile
Epitome of sunshine
Meaning to my existence
So long done with out

Touch
She touched me
Raptures shuddering through me
Now I live to know

Beginning
Groping for words
Breathe thunders in chest
Hands clammy with damp sweat

Awkward
Stuttering lost voice
Boundless place to be
Silent as the empty sea

Fear
She looking away
Finding the first excuse
Chance gone another opportunity lost

Pain
Different from before
She glides to another
Next victim of her light

Done
Life failed again
Never to be better
Having breathed superior air…
