Fallen for My Own Demons
I see nothing but the dark shadows of everyone who’s left me behind.
My eyes remain wide open
Searching for something to hold on to
The laughter of a child
Or the newly blossomed rose
Or the sunset, the sunrise, the twilight
Perhaps a little glimpse of hope?
But all I see is a dark abyss
The darkness creeps inside of me
Expanding itself from the very core
To the already scarcely brighter parts of myself
I feel like a little fish lost in the dark sea
With numerous sharks and other dark creatures roaming near me
All wanting to hurt me, to eat me.
I shake, wither, tremble, shiver
I cry, scream, shriek, screech
I give my fins a ferocious thrust
In the hopes of escaping the darkness
But all goes in vain
I try again and again and again
But in the end
The darkness consumes me
Only for me to realize
That I have fallen
To the dark world
To the dark creatures
To everything I ever feared
But most of all
I have fallen again
To my very own demons.
