I've been there.
I've been here.
I've been circling around.
And around.
Why does the water tastes bitter?
Why does the wind smells acrid?
Why does the sunshine looks gray?
Why does the days feel empty?
Visage full of tears,
Abasement due to fears,
Longing and lamentation,
Epitaph and addiction.

Today, I am reborn
Ignify at dawn
Nay, sorry not sorry
Everyone, I am worthy!

Circling around.
Endless bound.
