Whispers Toward The Darkness

Another ten paces and I fall again 
to my knees 
the truth too unbearable 
like the scorch of the sun, it will burn hot 
no running will get you further away from it 
no amount of water could ever cleanse 
no sound can drown the songs of deceit 
when devils are allowed to dance all around you
their voices are soft, tempting, and following
their gestures a play before only my eye
pull me and push me…my story, my actions, my ending
I’m in a trance and see the world beyond this painful pane
fraternizing with demons and laying proud in the shadows
but the promises I have received still lure me
so for now I will bed the malevolent
and risk the glass being broken

    1. Wow, what an awesome comment to get me past this Monday I’m having. Made me smile for sure. I’ve been tapping into something that I can’t quite figure out, but for now, I’ll keep transcribing what just ultimately wants to come out. This poem is another result of that process. Hope you’re well. Take care and thanks again.
