Hero Pt. 1

by m. e. roach

 

again

again

and again

round and round i go

 

never learning

never changing

a dog returning to its vomit

immersed in filth

fighting the One

i want the most

 

all that is pure and holy

slips away

and i am left

 

a handful of ashes

burned by my own choices

 

everything i can’t see

everything i didn’t say

everything i couldn’t stop

everything i shouldn’t have done

and everyone i couldn’t save

staring up at me

dragging me through

 

again

again

and again

round and round i go

never stopping

 

the circle of death

 

i can’t stop

can’t stop this horror

this horror i have created

 

and hopeless,

i let go-

falling through black
