a moment to fangirl-

Ok. Better. Let’s get on with my poem then.. shall we?

I wake up and there it is,
Sharp, solitary, inky,
A heavy burden that’s,
Only mine to carry.

It hunts me, it haunts me,
No, not a ghost of the night,
But a creature of the light,
Named the shadow of mine.

The words, the knives,
The pains, the poisons,
Neither one worse,
Than this shadow of mine

I lay down to sleep,
And there it still is,
Even night’s shady crowd,
Cannot camouflage it.

I wonder if this is how Atlas felt.
Unable to escape such a laden weight.

I cannot breathe.

After all these days I should’ve learned,
I can’t escape my shadow,
I am no peter pan half dead.

I cannot live.

A memento of.
My imperfection,
It kills me so.

I cannot die.

I can’t breathe.
I can’t live.
I can’t die.
I can’t escape.
