Cross over

I had hoped to make it through
Sand blasting into my eyes
Wheezing and aching through the storm
Across the the smouldering wreck
To live past distress when all is done

I had hoped to make it through
Another day, another night
Tossing and turning every wakeful hour
Pulling out of the pit of hell
Right on time to elude perdition

I had hoped to make it through
A loveless life and hopeless notions
Trudging by in languish
Choking on the stink of despair
With a single breath to hold on to

I had hoped to make it through
Every betrayal that whipped my skin
All the pleas that went unheard
Cruelty nipping over unhealed scabs
And ultimately, mercy that was denied

Hey everyone after a very, very long time. I really hope everyone is safe and sound during the pandemic, or atleast as safe and sound as we can be.
So, I’m really not sure if this post is good, bad or okayish. But then I thought, oh to hell with it and published it. A lot of the upcoming posts were written over the last year and kept hidden deep in my closet, for the same reason.
Thanks for reading guys! Have a great day! Lots of love!
