Unchanging Remedy

My mind is well-ridden of fear,
but my heart beats inconsistently.

If 'forever' was a means to one moment's happiness,
you have tightened the clamp on torment.

I feel deserted with no probable cause,
and I determine my mind needs you
more than my being discloses.

Consequence without a stimulus-
I assume what I deserve is no matter.

Just as the world's suffering with never cease,
I concur this pain will remain as well,

so I wipe away yesterday and conclude tomorrow will be no different.
