Limit: A Poem

Pushed to the limit, standing at the brink
Racing to the edge of a knife
Not knowing how to think
Darkness nipping at my life

Two minds racing, a hijacking of thoughts
A black and white explosion
The grey is desperately sought
In a rising pool of emotion

An emotional strong hold of a rational plea
Faded outer scars stay fresh within
The pool turns into a sea
As I reflect on what could have been

Gripping, crushing, nowhere to turn
Bold blacks swallow fading whites
The inner scars begin to burn
Threatening to show the outer scars light

I struggle for breath
In an emotional ocean so vast
The waves, a tug-o-war with death
But I know I'll make it

'Cause like the waves, this too shall pass
