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

Lurking Demon

tumblr_static_1373848412_demonic

The mighty demon

Lurks silently in the dark

In mysterious wait

The victim suspects?

No. Demon sneaks through the cracks

Envelopes the soul

The victim crumbles

Unaware of deadly force

A demon was here

The Foreign Island

In response to The Daily Post’s prompt “Mad Libs”

Out of place in a home that is my own

Out of touch in a world where I should belong

Out of breath from running after a mirage

Out in a little island, foreign to all but me

Minuscule yet has an abundance of joy

Petite yet visible in an ocean of sorrow

Tiny yet full of will and courage

Small yet dripping with unharnessed potential

 Its little heart beats loudly

Its blood runs deep

It aches from constant cruelty

 But its soul it is destined to keep

A foreign island all alone

A little island standing tall

An unnoticeable island  to those who can’t know

A peaceful island with dangerous waters below
