Clad in black

Written by: Janet Cavan

Raging battle of sense and emotion
Envelops my world... No escape...
So unbearable this devotion
And my heart's no longer safe.
My burden of pain will not lessen
To endurance my soul will commit
Am I bound to learn one more lesson?
Before I'm allowed to quit.
If you only hung on for a fraction
To the moment before it ends
But for you I was only distraction,
Stepping stone to make ammends.
I am facing the end of this fight.
Never turning or looking back.
I was destined to wear white
And instead I am clad in black.
