Faltering

The wave passes,
My knees fall heavy,
Many people walk by

Unknown faces,
An oblivious world.

The pain seeps in.

The fear, worries, thoughts and pain of the past.
A toxic poison, dragging at my ankles.

I feel myself faltering,
Feeling the fade.

As I keep myself up.

The flashes of the past.
Filling myself with doubt and sadness.
Replacing this, with rage and defiance.

To stop myself faltering.
To save myself pain.
To keep myself on track.

But here, I feel myself faltering.
