The enemy is me

I know not what I see

So I can not perceive

What lies beyond the trees

Forests of darkness now foreshadow my view

Lost searching for answers but all I find is you

Choked by despair I can not call your name

Destined to watch you go while I bow my head in shame

Dangling from the strings of discord

Hanging from the tree of despair

All hope fades from my eyes

As my soul greets the air

Sorry for the word count, just tryna make my words count

Tryna make the words bounce, but messed up on the dismount
