It all hit me today
The weight of what I've done
Trapped for another year
To face all as only one

My heart is set to burst
Under its constant strain
I try to kill the hurt away
But I can't escape the pain

What have I just done...
My future's bleak
The only question on my mind
Could I survive another week?

I once had it all
An empire to burn
Now the flames have settled down
Soon it will be my turn

I try to close the hole
That I myself had tore
I look deep inside
And see the casualties of my war

I nearly made it out
Alive and still so sane
But the wounds have taken their toll
And nothing is the same

What is now to come...
I'm growing weak
Constantly being put down
Forever lone and forever meek

And you can take it all
My empire of rust
I will remain here
Until I'm only dust

    Deeply thought out and perfectly written. A facinating poem to read.
