I Quit

Without revitalization nor remedy I strive on.
Long-said promises fade.
I worry for my own soul.

Without revitalization nor remedy I strive on.
My eyes search for light.
This darkness cannot be endless.

Without revitalization nor remedy I strive on.
I fall for the umpteenth time.
Has everyone abandoned me?

Without revitalization nor remedy I strive on.
Now I crumple onto the pavement.
Accepting defeat, I quit.

    Never quit writing my friend for you have so much talent. To be able to put into words the way one feels in the hours of greatest need or when magic surrounds them is a true gift. You possess that gift. This is very well written though it is a sad piece. Revitalization is truly what we all need from time to time. Peace, Love and Light be with you always. Smiles from Lolita
