Risks

“And, darling, I know I’d much rather live
this life with you than risk losing you.”

I’m standing at the edge of oblivion and I’m no longer certain I don’t want to explore its depths. Maybe I’ll find something beyond the darkness, something that will bring life. Perhaps rid me of these demons that follow me. But I know what I’d be leaving behind. And, darling, I know I’d much rather live this life with you than risk losing you.

Sometimes I have to
remind myself that I’m fighting
for more than just myself.
Can you relate?
