Cursed

It’s one of those endless nights

When the world around you disappears

Leaving you all alone

In a cruel desert

With Misery, for company.

 

The Devil beckons to you

Waving The Past as a clever bait

And you,

Being the fool that you are

Cheered by good old Misery

Run to get The Past

To hold it, to save it,

To treasure it,

Not knowing that it’s nothing

But Poison, in disguise.

 

The kind of poison

That doesn’t kill instantly

But sucks the soul out of you

Slowly, but surely.

 

What was once sweet

Now tastes bitter

What once felt safe

Is now scary

What was once beautiful

Is just unrecognizable

 

You crave life,

Peace and sleep.

 

But Oh dear heart

Did you forget

That you live in a desert

Which can only be wet

By the tears you shed?
