The Winner

Warning! Possible trigger – suicide content!


In response to paeansunplugged’s prompt Poetics: The Good And The Evil for dVerse Poets Pub

I think I’m done, she said to no one in particular. I can’t do this anymore. The pain is too great, and the loneliness is worse.

And what is it you will do?
Said a deep gravely voice with glee.

I have pills, different kinds. I don’t know but I’d just like to go to sleep and be done, she replied.

But you will not be done little one, it won’t be over. You will suffer endlessly should you choose this path, said a soft commanding voice.

Then what am I to do? She cried into the night.

You persevere. You continue. You fight with every ounce of your soul. You are the Light and darkness abhors the Light. Be the Light so that others may follow your Light and live too. Be the Light that wins. Be the winner, the soft voice echoed from far away.

She slept.
