As I stagger towards these eroded shores,
Fog creeps out from unknown pores.
Phantasms appear and they circle me.
Creatures born of wrath and cruelty.
They cackle out as they get near,
And I fall back in paralyzing fear.
Your specter glows so bright,
The ghostly figures fade from sight.
You spared my life, though yours is lost.
Absolution came at a cost.
Though I am lost perpetually.
I know one day you’ll return to me.

My name is Jesse, I am a writer. I post both poetry and mental health pieces about my own struggles and journey on my blog here: https://oneregulardad.home.blog/
