I thought perhaps I had ~ only
maybe it isn't for me to know.
I'm frustrated beyond
words and I don't
understand why ~ it is how it is
anymore and it feels like
I should care, and maybe I
do, but today it just feels like I don't.
When will this haunting
stop chasing me down ~ below
the things I desire and think I own
only to find them lost to the night
floating as wraiths from my grasp
and taunting me under their spells?
