Somewhere Inside

I was afraid to die

scared to death

held my breath

until I stood

in the between

of here and nowhere

I faced absolutely nothing

and couldn’t get away from anything

all my fears were mocking

while I lacked the empathy

to even care I drank the poison

I was staring deep inside

wide awake and asleep inside

and death was there

in the brink

in the blink

the eye that stared back

into me

and I saw in him

Every dream that died

in me

and I screamed into the silence

while he smiled

threw me off balance

when he held out his hand

and beckoned me near

and I smiled


as I pushed through his skull

to find the nothing

holding my heart frozen

in this tangled web


my own destruction

and his laughter echoed

down the halls and off the walls

in this insanity I’ve awoken.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
