This Far


I won’t take another breath

This driving rain will not contain me
I keep feeling not a chance is left
But this leaving will not keep me
I’ve become so spent in my fighting
Wondering when this tightening
Of my heart will reach its peak
When driving ceases, I won’t know this, until I am that which I seek
I hold, I hold, I stumble, crumble countless times
I hold, I hold, I shake and I break, I break through all over again and find
…time and toll have taken all they will from me
And yet they prolong the pathos to my heart
Never releasing me, bearing undo misery
Will I go this far and still not cease?
All I ever truly know is
For a dreamer…
…it is impossible to relinquish belief…
