Constantly swimming against the current.
Every small task becomes a deterrent.
Fighting with mind body and soul.
Paying the gate keeper a hefty toll.
Blinded by light comfort in shade.
Forever dulling this rusty blade.
Breath by breath time moves away.
Crumbling and breaking down everyday.
Pictures are all this man has left.
Solitude in images a pain in my chest.
Craving your touch a smile a laugh.
Missing my friend my better half.
Dreams every night of what could be.
Thoughts of the past you and me.
I am still the man you fell for.
Can we rebuild can we restore?
