Little Fears Presents: Masked Sin

Masked Sin

By Jay-lyn Doerksen

On my shoulders
carrying the weight
dreams broken
left dying at my feet
tears gathering
never falling
staring into the mirror
hollowed eyes
empty
what can I say?
You haunt me
my dreams
my desires.
I want to walk forward
forge a path
but there you are
foiling my way.
Smoked delusions
lay back
watch starlight dance across the sky
I hurt
ache
take a deep breath
my pain
hidden
pushed down
until forgotten.
Not forgotten
ignored
smile plastered
heart breaking
you pass me by
I wish you happiness
while I sink to my knees
memories overwhelming
one after another
bleed
veins slashed
sorry
no blame
no guilt
I need to be free…..
free of pain
of hatred
of life…..
Bend not before my grave
raindrops hard
battering
no salve for your conscience.
Scars
threaded black and blue
you might hit me
curled inwards
words pierce
slaughtering my soul
my heart.
Good night
my sweet prince.
Come just a little closer
lean in
feel that blade slip between your ribs.
Fall to knees
gasp
cold grief
stand above
should have told you
I am a psychopath.

 

Peter over at Little Fears reached out to me recently and asked if I would be interested in doing a poem for him which fit in with his Little Fears Concept. This is that poem. Hope you enjoy and if you haven’t already go say hello to Peter.
