shields

i’m almost back
but i’m not entirely there yet
i need to keep my shields up
i can’t afford to forget

how far down the void goes
too dark for me to see
the demons that lie in wait
ready to devour me

and everything i believe in
all love and light all gone
leaving only a shell of what used to be
a soul undone and outrun

so the shields will remain up
until i’m ready to fight again
for my art, my passion, my heart
none of the hard lessons forgotten

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
