surely

I have yet to find a lie
that hurts more than this truth
muddled in frustration
blinded by
humbled desperation
giving in
while folding into
extinction
of what this heart
has longed for
but will never
shelter again
swarming like an insect
confused by the scent
of what is drawing it near
stumbling and recklessly
advancing
seeking out its taste
while knowing
all the while
it will surely
bring death
