Despair

That uncomfortable silent presence that gnaws at your heart ever so slowly;
it creeps up on you, bit by bit, filling the light with dark.
You hide behind a feigned smile, a flimsy joke, a tacit remark–
all the while believing the darkness has not won.
Then, you wake up one day, only to realize it’s too damn late.
You have already given up, in more ways than one.
