Failure

Losing time
As we lose patience
Crying out in frustration

Here we go, down our rabbit hole
Time to run, but our legs fail

I can see down the darkened path
Ever knowing the the wrath of aftermath

Still not knowing when the first blow came
Reddened bruises that were never the same
In the rabbit hole
As we run late
There lay the makeup brushes
That cover bruises with strategic touches

Here I stand in couture and pearls
Cameras flashing
But I see no light
Because I am in forever night

My legs fail me
My words fail me
My mind fails me

My spirit never will
