An old draft that fell in to the void – ‘How I Live Each Day’

I awaken in darkness greeted by the pain left behind

Where I used to see joy I see only sorrow barren and lifeless with not path to follow

Is this the fate I have to endure

To live alone with no hope of more

Friends and family gather in aid trying to reduce this pain that has stayed

Life alone is my choice keeping friends of the edge

Its better this way and keeps them safe

Each day wandering will this ever go away, will this ever stop
