A Mans Pride

I grasped so hard for the things I thought I needed. Did I wither in desperation just to fulfill the love uncompleted? I fell backwards into cycles so many times, I felt myself drowning and losing my mind. Not one single moment did that love feel right. A void that I filled, a passion inside of me that burned, I learned from my past that I was never enough. I carried that burdened and lived it out as my truth, just to burn my foundation down to create a new youth. I craved as much as I cried, believing in every self taught lie… I relied on false lovers to replace my mind. I faltered out, a dead star drowned out from a mans pride.
