Monsters and demons perpetually
clinging onto his weathered back.
The past buries him anew every night. Nightmares possess him.
Darkness enslaves him.
Yet even when the mightiest and
most treacherous of foes batter him,
when his soul is cut ruthlessly
by memories that haunt him tirelessly,
when he knows that he walks the walk
of the forever doomed,
a little light shines defiantly in the long
forgotten outskirt of his heart.
Reminding him to never surrender.
She fuels his beautiful dream.
Whispers that one day
love will be enough
to unchain him.
Let him roar
past all the regrets.
Once again he
will love freely.

Joshua dreaming, 2016
