Why did you give me a flower so beautiful,
then make me watch its petals fall?
Why did you gift me a single seedling,
but forbid me from watering it?
Why did you lead me to the purest of water,
yet poison it with your toxins?
You chuckle to youself
as I try to overcome it,
out determine it,
all the while knowing
deep within the well of my soul,
you with prevail.
all the while aware that
in the darkest cavern of my mind,
the end is inevitable.
I feel your cool breath,
awaken the hair on the back of my neck,
whispering in my ear,
