Enveloped by Darkness

Enveloped by darkness day after day

Surrounded by friends ready to play

Alone in a crowd cheerful and smiling

Drowning inside dying and crying

Isolated as usual with limited choices

Invisible among them, but no one notices

Critical sometimes they are of my ways

Silent or furious are my moods without delays

Hearing their voices but not listening to their words

Because often they slay me like sharpened swords

Not great company I am I know

But where else am I supposed to go

Trapped inside myself away from reality

Despising its expectations and meaningless futility

Away when among them, away when alone

Haunted by demons that were birthed at home

The Effects of Modern Expectations

The line between what is real and what is not is blurred and faded away

Thus the demons and doubts in my head decided to come out and play

As they run around, I sit here on this silent night and pray and pray

Wishing that God would hear my prayer and save my soul today

For these fears and anxieties are driving me insane in every way

And the darkness has consumed my all, leaving  behind ashes of grey

But I still dream of a future not too far, one that’s here to stay

So I continue to plead in prayer “Dear God, please return what has been taken away”

And once again I hope they’re heard, for the madness I cannot delay

Terrified

6fct8-two-sentence-horror-stories

Terror seeping into my soul

Emotional wreck, almost not whole

Relentless agony, which must be endured

Reminded by horrors? I’m not even sure

Ignorant of events yet to come

Fearful of demons, when there are none

Impossible anxiety, beyond rationality

Eating away at the truths of reality

Dominating my thoughts and causing calamity
