When patterns turn askew
upsetting a perfect equilibrium,
a battle rages in and out of me
an inevitability I am unprepared

Whenever I close my eyes
I can’t drown out the incessant pulsating beat
and a dark voice enticing me
pulling me into the oblivion of the dark night

But I know in my heart
there’s a shaft of light
at the end of the tunnel
for my story never ends here
as my canvas is not quite complete
