Stress

         

Unessesary pressure,  lives 
upon your soul subjugating 
It captures , holds your civilized 
nature
Like parasite that feeds on its 
victim;
The stress makes you forget 
yourself 
And in the mirror it's not you 
That looks at you from depths 
forgotten
Your face is numb,  dark, with 
pale smile, filled with 
distasteful apathy
Gazing like a ghost from its 
comfortable grave.
But for a moment you think you 
are living
But that illusion is the end,
You just exist in your false 
safety 
Without thrill, without pleasure,
Just like a shadow on the busy 
streets.
