Talking to himself

Talking to himself self

He feels the hollow bones of fear
Why can’t he switch it off?
This thing that’s droning on and on
Like a dull relentless cough
Why does the silence hide from him
As the noise goes on within
It always overpowers him
This dull relentless din

He knows there’s something else around
He can feel it calling him
Behind the doors of his own story
Behind that stuff so grim
These Ghosts they be just emptiness
They don’t exist at all
They’re just part of a life story
That needs that he must fall

‘Oh turn it off, it has no worth’
It drags him to the ground
‘Please cast those ghosts away from me!!’
His solace must be found
Within the gleam of the one that’s ‘he’
The portal of all mystery
It’s all a crazy game of chance
It’s just how things must be.

He tries with just a simple act
To stop this crazy show
Because he knows the more he fights 
The stronger it will grow
So as fear gives his fearsome glare
He touches him with a gentle stare
Until this beast cannot hold on
And then too soon the lie is gone.
