Embrace the Line

It’s my sanity fight That rages day and night. Darkness descends on me. Gray hardness suspends me, Then chokes me on its spree. My mind and emotions Fatigue from erosions That my own existence Cannot now outdistance. Crazy takes energy Worth a sad elegy. I flirt with the fine line, For escape seems divine, Nudging my step closer To do it, cross over. I stray towards insane, But still hear my apt brain Stressing simply and plain, Do not pine for that line! I embrace its design So my heart may define, Refuse and so decline This real life exit line. ... CayCay Jennings July 3, 2016
