WHEN THE SHADOWS STARE

I stare and the world dances before me

I blink and the world stands still

But only for a moment 

These tears get me nowhere 

I draw my sword against myself 

While holding a torch

I cannot see so far

Yet I blame the world

So what do I do

What do I do

I don’t know what to do

I’ve sang that mantra for so long

My lips have become chapped 

The words blur against each other

They have become slurred

Tell me

What is this endless fight

If I cannot see surely I can hear

Who knew the demons I feared were within and not outside me

I stay like dead wood

Wondering who or what will come to save me

Alas I’m a victim of myself
