10 Years (Gift of Desperation)

gift of desperation

By Allyson C.

10 years
It took me to realize
I am my own demise

10 days
I’ve been lying here
In misery
Cold, hot, weak, jittery
Nausea, Dizzy
When will it ever end?

10 seconds pass
An eternity

10 days in Hell
Such a small price to pay
After a decade of having things my way
I cheated, I lied, lost so many
I cried
The lies the lies the lies
It was worth it, right?
To feel nothing
To feel everything
To feel…

10 hours later
My mind slightly clearer
Finding peace knowing
I am only growing
Forgive the lies
Forgive the pain

But never forget
The poison in your veins
Is truly what drove you insane
Caused all the pain
It’s finally time to

10 years
I am strong
I am ready

To embrace the hands
That hold me steady
Never forgetting
The gift of desperation
