One small truth in a untruthful world

Once again

I seek

The truth

Written in the stars,

the night sky

whispers and urges


To see

what I am

too blind to see

I am Lost

Once again


My Own Making

I am not

as strong

as I once was..

the lies

Called Fear

Speak louder than

My speechless demeanor

could ever convey...

Completely consuming

My whole Being

takes control of my body,

as if it was possessed

by the shadows

from my nightly

night terrors..

I'm on constant alert

Sleeplessly Relieved..

Another attack avoided.

Strategic battle plans

carried out

flawlessly... Again

I have cheated Death

Another Day Has Begun...


the slightest glimpse of what lies beneath

sets off my motion detector

the bright lights shine and expose

the secrets

I keep, even from myself

but you cant out run

Your Shadow
