Have you ever thought where the real monsters are?
Not under our beds, they have raised their bars.
When you lie alone, awake;
Can you feel that aberrant ache?
Deep inside your chest; slithering; encapsulating in the mouth of a snake.
Every night, red eyes surround me,
No longer safe, I drown in their shallow sea.
Mumbling to myself, suffocating in pain of every degree.
And then I ponder,
Long nights of horror, out as I wonder.
The streets of my city, dead and decaying
All the while being another I am portraying.
Wondering what is truly stalling my recovery?
Those monsters have caused pain deep within me,
A saga of retaliation, a path to eternal gratification?
An atrocious fate after centuries of adoration.
However, in the end, is it all even worth it?
I know I deserve it.
All of it.
Let it sink in,
And finally, burn it all to ashes.
Rise up, bask in it, it’s not a sin
and again, begin.
Another small poem I wrote inspired from another one of my artworks. I am gonna post it tomorrow because I couldn’t finish writing it all up. I am reassessing how I write about my 30 day journey. I want to include my inspiration for that piece as well as write a short story on it. I hope some of you will like it. Please do feel free to critique my work, I really appreciate it very much!
