Broken

Strength wanes, resolve fades
Hope extinguished
Emptiness swims behind haunted eyes
Fighter instincts make hasty retreat
Beaten.  Weary.  Lost.
Failure, once held at bay now leaves destructive carnage
Searches for meaning, discovers blank pages
Comfort; no words can bring
Barbed wire, broken glass, hazardous trail
Darkened sky; no navigational compass, no stars for light
Forward motion futile, barricaded path
No rescue.  No escape
