Faceless Adversary

Faceless Adversary


So lonely,

So unsympathetic,

So frosty,

Makes me weary.



Faceless adversary,

Puts me on a pedestal,

Just to toss me off.



Drains my self-belief,

Leeches on my confidence,

Laps up my composure.



I consider myself a warrior,

The man in the mirror taunts me,

I am broken,

Broken from all the troubles,

Broken with ignominy.



Drives me to the brink,

My breaking point is near,

Will I survive this treatment?



Where is the way out?

Where is the light at the end of the tunnel?

Is this the finale?



If this is life,

I’d rather be dead,

Dead and Gone,

Away from this feeling,

Away from this hurt,

Away from this emptiness,



Stop sapping life out of me,

If you can’t be decent to me,

Let me go,

Go far away to the yonder,

Where I’ll know no hurt,

No tear,

No disappointments.



Just let me go.

    The Audacity of Misery in life is stronger than we can all imagine and the key to free oneself is deeper than we know. The strength to find this freedom is the key to happiness… Nice one hun.
