from inside

i am giving up everything for a dream
of something more
and i don’t know if that which is more
is worth the price i will pay
to find it…

i am falling under the weight of my heart
and pain pulsates throughout my body
leaving me panicked and stricken
by doubt and fear
…I am beside myself

tears cloud my vision of the future
and pain of the past lingers
upon my shoulders like black smoke
I am utterly fallen into despair
and I have nothing left

desolate and alone
I long for more time to decide…and try
and the pain that pricks my heart
is like poison
devouring me from inside
