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
