Caught in the middle...
I don't know which way to go.
Which path do I pursue?
A frightening new future
mocking my old way of life.
A burning in the depth of my soul.
Yearning to escape
the void I am falling into.
Struggling to walk this thin line.
A stranger being born inside
pleading with the old, familiar one
for a taste of adventure, of life,
of a love that the cancer stole.
It mocks my waking moments...
... and haunts my dreams.
The shame of it all to know
I have experienced life too soon.
Began before I could have ever known
a future that can never be.
