its worse on these days

when loneliness becomes

far too close a companion

the pain too overwhelming

life fights just to carry on

so desperate for a remedy

healing tries to be found

in very frightening places

temptation allures becomes

hard as adamant, too hard

to even want to try to fight

its tender promises beckon

obscuring greater horrors

dragging down into death

how loud these horrors cry

yet draw me nearer You


Worse Today
