Image for the poem Keep


Can you see what I see
No time to hide
Crawling all over
Itching under skin
Dragging out
Into night's chill
Feeding a hole
Biting hard
Splitting lips

Needs a burning fever
Like shackles
Slaves to fear
So blind
Corrupted in flesh
Prisoner by design
Holding broken hands
Lost to insecurity

Can you hear me
Is my point worthwhile
Afloat in deceptive ideals
Looking for adoration
Some affection
Only now to see
How much its just self pity
A bunch of senseless words
Contrived in a wayward mind

The body speaks
Its time to admit I'm weak

Hollow follows....

I can dive deep

Hurt mine to keep.
