Open Up The Pain
Digging deep with my past
I remember well
Running on empty never lasts
I put myself thru hell
Feel the darkness swelling
In the recess of my mind
Fear of loathing breeds
I sense I am growing blind
Left alone with destiny
I am slowly being drained
Turn the key unlock the door
Open up the pain
The final days are coming
I feel it deep within my bones
Is this nightmare over
Am I finally going home

I wanted to say something profound, but after I read Ali's comments I don't think I can add anything as true and poignant. I do find that I tend to bury my pain or apply a band-aid to some gaping aching wounds...not a good idea.

Fletch, I think we all can identify with these feelings and emotions, I especially loved this

 The demons of hell always trying suck the life out of us.. Always turning and there they are... Darkness has so many spooky faces.
 You and Tracy have a good will sooth the remaining fears.. Hugs and LOve ~ She Whispers

Facing your demons is never easy Fletch. You are home where you belong in the arms of your loving wife love. The comfort you need is gained from your faith my friend




Love Angelx

I sense such deep despair here Fletch. I hope its not written from fact but if it is, remember that opening up old wounds is a painful business but many times a necessary one to true permanent healing. Same goes for opening doors. Confrontation can be an empowering thing once you take the reins
