Menace

This poem is about a darker subconscious that mirrors our every step, follows us with every action we decide, and whispers to us during the darkest moments of our life.
“Menace”

I look around at the silhouettes
The eyes, they dive inside of me
I’d push away, but it’s too dark to see
The menacing voices, the laughter it hurts
Pinch to remind, make me alert

I need to know I’m alive
The darkness settled in and I’m beginning to wonder

I bite down on my tongue, to cease what’s to say
It seems like forever, this long drifting day
Alone with my thoughts, but not so alone
A conscience that whispers thoughts of a home

It may be out there after all

Walking alone, but a shadow’s still there
Walking beside me, at the thread of my hair
It mimics my movements, it dances with light
Then it just goes at the coming of expected night

So I ask myself, what is left for me
But a mixture of heart-wrenching dark misery

A world of nothing, that’s drenched in despair
A group of ‘friends’ that can never be there
A family that judges, a job that’s dead end
A world of nothing, with tight ropes and close bends

So walk with me now, laugh in each step
This world of ruins that has little left
Smile at nothing, brace for the fall
Cause without a smile, why wake up at all?
