Fallen, I don’t hear your voice.

The power that echoed within,

Long since grown quiet.

Stillness is maddening.

Silence is deafening.

Hopeless in the void.

Fallen, I can’t see your face.

The purity that washed over,

Turned to blood.

Stained and used,

I struggle to move forward.

Muscles have turned to liquid.

Brittle bones break with each step.

Fallen, my words twist.

Taking a shape all their own.

Not what I said, not what I meant.

Truthful to a fault,

My words transform.

Growing into falsehoods.

Fallen, I am left to wander.

Fallen, I am left to wonder.

Was it worth it?
