This unseen enemy is wearing me down,
Eating away at the corners of my colourful dreams little by little like silverfish at paper.
At first I didn’t even notice and I felt like it was no match for me. I danced around it confidently thinking I was to win but here’s the thing, the whole time it laughed at me and I simply could not see.
Now my dreams are fast fading and my world is looking grey. I’m cold and alone while others dance and play.
I’m shut in and it feels like so many things have been taken away.
