The Obligation
by Kathy B. Swann

The view from behind the dark glasses in foreboding
The ache in your head leaves your brain empty
You want to scream but are afraid of the noise
You frantically look to other for understanding
Their eyes turn away leaving you so alone

The only respite is silence- deafening silence
You become a ghost shrouded in darkness
Your temple is made of desperate nothingness
Your life a mere shadow of before…
No release is offered or gained

Hopes and dreams scatter like the wind
Years lost never to regain
Time creeps on with no destination
Days and nights meld into one
The ravages etched on a blank canvas

Your song has lost all rhythm
Your step is out of time
Standing on the cusp of lost conviction
Headed nowhere in a downward spiral
The detours a haze in your mind

You cast your soul in hopes of salvation
Remnants of a faith long abandoned
You seek to salvage pieces that remain
Seeking a peace so fervently partaken
Dejected by the path of only yesterdays

Striving for a reprieve of fond tomorrows
You resist the draw of final surrender
Although ever so sweet is its clear refrain
The haunting truth you can not abandon
Continuing on for other- you must stay
