Let Go

Quiet desire simmers within
where gloom dwells
    Or escape.
At my wrist, darkness clutches
reining me back
in broken promises,
word for word, inch by inch

Hope in distant sunshine sets
devoured by darkened dread

        let go!

                 I choose.
I’m moving —

    A great share friend.
    At first it felt like despair
    Then there’s a hope

    A ray of light
    A light that tells to push forward.
    Great share.
