My gut twists
In agony
Knots tightening
Bile rising
I’m trapped in this
Of broken dreams
That never end
Eyes shut tight
Stinging with pain
Light eluding
Darkness suffocating
The words have disappeared
Fading truths untold
And I’ve bared my soul
For nothing but loss
Now look at the cost
I’ll accept my fate
And lose a friend
If only to keep my word
In the end
Amidst liars
