A few poems I wrote lately


Lurks

That Which Lurks Within

 

I carry dark things within me

They lurk and hover out of sight

I carry dark things within me

And then within me ignite

Pulsating agony within me

Pain that slumbers, twists and turns;

Pulsating agony within me

Wakes and claws and burns.

I cannot shed this weight within me,

pulling me into the ground.

I cannot shed this weight you see,

crushing me without a sound

 

monster

Migraine Monster

 

Insidious creeping beast,

Hovering in the edges of my mind

It’s going to make me its feast;

Digging in, groans and mined

Blinding sharp creature

finding all the hard edges of my brain

It is the breaker;

Feeding on the splinters of my pain

My monster. My Bane.
