Fear looms its dark head over mine,
I take cover behind my consciousness, only to buy time.
Taking a look around my shattered world -
that familiar place, now filled with tales untold,
making me feel like a stranger among my kin,
punished sorely for some long forgotten sin.
I look for a respite, there has to be a way out -
but the sound of my tears falling, drowns out my shout.
Searching for a shoulder to cry on
I stumble and fall, yet look on;
the smiles I remember have turned into frowns
turning my honey-coloured world into a gloomy brown.
I try to run, but there’s nowhere to hide
and suddenly I feel Fear sitting by my side.
Cupping my ears, I scream for help,
but what comes out of my lips is barely a yelp.
I am confused, depressed, there is many a doubt
maybe the Fear beside me is not without?
It is within me, filling my entire being
suffocating me from inside…
I struggle hard, I try to break free
but Darkness overpowers me…
But Darkness overpowers me…
If you liked my work, you might consider buying me a beer.
