Snake Oil Stalker

Standard

It is calling me each and every day
It calls me at night hard to keep it at bay
When I am low and in need it is by my side
Waiting to pounce when I lose my stride

It stalks me in my darkest hour
It grows taller and taller every time I cower
I hear it as you are reading this
Presenting the illusion of eternal bliss

It whispers my name with the cold wind
It pushes down on me until I am pinned
Cornered until I have no escape
You can’t elude this monstrous shape

It chips away until there is nothing left
It leaves me alone feasting on bereft
In a cloud of darkness with no way out
Stuck forever blanketed in self doubt

Spider Web Shadow

Standard

Darkness descending impending self doubt
I scream and I shout but it won’t let out
Run but can’t hide from my mind
Bide for time payback is in kind
Running in circles frantic finds
Memories locked semantic rewinds
Bed sheet skies whispering lies
Daily retries weakening goodbyes

A Case Of Stigma Sickness

Standard

Sanctimonious stigma sickness is screwing me
Mental awareness illness in a field of sheep
Car alarms radio bleeps phone staring shuffling
Sorrow filled blissful ignorance cheap tricks
Broken arm quick fix scrapheap mental condition
Monetary decision dream escape visions
Hearts locked in the recovery position
I never thought I’d be locked in this mental prison
