personal apocalypse

That sick moment 
when you realize the ugly truth
That you've invested yourself
In something that has no future

Where you stubbornly held faith
Sacrificed pieces of yourself
Gave into one sided compromise
For something that didn't work

Suddenly, after so long,
You can't keep from seeing it
The truth slaps you in the face
And the sun won't let you sleep

You don't want to give up
You hate the idea of giving in
But you can't stand where you are
You ache to move forward

So you dive into the unknown
Gamble on the risk of worse
To relieve the pain of foolish
You choose a new costume.
