won't come back

"what your biggest fear?"reads the paper above. you remember the ache in your chest, not a few months backwhen you had spiraled down and slipped through the cracksyou remember the down you had hit years agothe doctor said it would come againit turned to be a fact but this,this was different. you began stumbling...no fallingfalling worse than you ever imaginedyou gave in piece by piece think you're paying a gamebrutally, it caused more paina game you foughtnow your mind is lost sadness formed into self-hatewhich became rage then begins to fadethe cycle repeats.over and over again. you think of everything you lacksoon you think you can't come back. days turned to weeks and weeks into months you begin to see the sacrifices,and unconditional lovethe support you so longed cravedyou discover it was always thereyou were once again, saved.  you tell yourself,'this won't happen again'you said that last time but,you're afraid that next time you won't come back.
