Lurk

You lurk
unnoticed
whispering from darkened corners
the lies that suck my energy
while strengthening your voice

You exert subtle influence
convincing me to choose
the soundtrack that feeds only you
while leaving me in damp melancholy

You tilt my world
imperceptibly
s l o w l y
until suddenly I find myself
half
  way
   down
      a
         scree
           strewn
             slope
               sliding
                  gently
                     into
                            the pit

It would be easy not to fight
surrender to your silky welcome
but I know it's a mirage
what you really offer is torment


Still,
you lurk

and I'm tired.
