The beginning of the end was months ago, and I only now am beginning to fall.

And when I told you, “I have to forget”

You knew the diagnosis of life draining from a tomorrow that may never come

You fought, came, and conquered

But I am not you.

my bruises are bruised  

and scars barely healed

I focus my eyes on the horizon, but you, what laid beyond

Stained white walls and steel covered window pains.

free from all exploited feats

I have come to heal, to rid of old habits while gaining some new

It seemed easy because you did it first

Because before I can get better, things might get worse.
