A shadow forms in my mind,
dark and mysterious it lurks from behind.
My heart beats faster as it slowly eats me.
This is real, how bad can it be?
I tried to hide it with a smile,
but it only lasts for awhile.
Drown it with a drink they say,
but wine didn't make it go away.
The angst and pain worsen day by day.
So hard to get over it, can't even understand why.
Where did I go wrong?
I thought I was strong.
Yet there you are, you've been gone
