Tomorrow the abyss will call again 

I thought about doing it

So close, so tempted

I walked away scared

But with dignity

I stared into the abyss 

And nearly drowned 

But not all is safe 

Tomorrow, the abyss will call again 
To stare it down

Is to drown 

To stare it down

Is to crown

I hear the siren call

It’s melodic and poisoned

Will die if not strong 

Will cry and bleed

I stared into the abyss

I nearly pulled the trigger

Wiped away the bleak eyes 

Tomorrow, the abyss will call again

To stare it down

Is to drown

To stare it down

Is to crown 

The abyss leaves a bad taste 

And it’s right around the corner

Must flush it out

Must resist

  1. I was in the abyss most of February, and off and on since the election. I completely understand. Sometimes, not often but once in awhile, I seek the abyss as an escape from this world.
