To The Bitter End

The last betrayal
Final throes of a weak mind
Calculated risk

Unsustainable
A fact I’ve known all along
Just now sinking in

A toast to the end
Coming unexpectedly
And not how you’d think

Celebrate weakness
The resolve to avoid it
And the strength that brings

May we never meet
In these solemn hallowed halls
And remember why

Here’s to brighter days
Carrying and burying
The shames of the past

A defaced beauty
Reminding me what’s at stake
Never forgotten

Twice I’ve lost my mind
So I cut it to pieces
There won’t be a third.
