The crimson eyes flickered like a warning siren
An ill omen, the menacing eyes of fate
Before my senses had the power to react
The glare died away, and I felt betrayed
Of the reality and the rationality
I was so proud of, the procrastination
Of my wisdom and my sanity
As I failed to realise what was going on
And it was dark again in the abyss of emptiness.
I was silent as my heart skipped a beat
Drenched in cold sweat I was scared!
I could sense the evil around me
Surreptitious and merciless,
Waiting to pounce upon the prey
As it lurked ominously in the binge!
The silence hurt me, I perspired like a pig,
It was the silence before the storm, before the wild rampage.
I prayed and I prayed and I prayed
As I was a prisoner at despair’s behest
Nothing seemed real, a mystifying mayhem
Bewilderment merged with incomprehensible fear:-
I don’t want to die; I don’t want to get hurt;
Alas! I was but in a fight with myself!
My inner self full of negativity and velleity
That had held me back, as I hopelessly rued:-
I was but blind, as my fears overpowered me
Like a filthy old demon ravaging
The innocence of a sweet little kid!
The abyss was my ignorance;
The darkness came from within;
I was the frog in the well!
I was the creator of the hell!
And as I gaze up now, a steep climb
Awaits me en route to my fight for my existence
Killing the fear, the crimson eyed monster
Tearing apart the despicable me from me
Will undoubtedly be something not easy!
Showering the darkness with light
Rejuvenation is on the cards,
But then I am bound by time!
