Murderous thoughts pass into dead of the night,
violent shadows mixed with two parts malice, one part fright.
Betrayal, jealousy, despair, and confusion
culminate together in a darkening delusion.
My own thoughts within are the public nemesis
as my eyes shoot blood at this anger’s genesis.
All those around me I thought were companions
turn on me now, those maleficent phantoms.
Smoldering love extinguished in smoke,
repaired heartstrings despite a heart that broke.
This darkness serves as a demon’s mirror
for night’s last hour is oppressed by fear.
Sleep stolen by non-existent betrayal
breaths drawn fast due to fury’s portrayal.
Spurn those close to me, banish all the care
not like they would remember if I was even there.
What shadows swarm my heart’s frail mind
that makes my hatred rise up in kind?
Embrace the noose with my neck
and enter hell with a step.
Demons leave me now, for I
go to seek my rest.
