There is a part of me I could not see
It hitched a run upon my yesterday
It’s marked my thoughts rather ambiguously
Roaring at my back the fire that breaths its invitation
Its free flowing drive to strive in my mind
Now it has moved in for the duration
Thus it has worn me thin as a thread as I bleed
Pouring out of me is this sinister friend
It owns me mind and soul eating me away inside
Should I fight this demon of sorts?
Couldn't it just vanish into the night, and depart from me?
Wonder all I want it still visits and wants
Hindering hidden passageways to forever
Laughing as loud and steady as the horn on a train blasting over the mountainside
Into the depths ride now ride into the plains and lows, over the hills
God I must fight this urge, just ripe out the monster of contentment
Be it blacken and then, a place of familiarity and easy comfort for fools
While it waits with flowers and inviting words and of course those boastful smiles
It is a friend in need?
The pungent aroma of flowers flawlessly I wept
