A Short Walk on the Dark Side

Rate: 7 Flag

shadows-12 

 

 

I feel evil lurking

I warn those close to me

They seem to frown, just slightly

And ask what's wrong with me. 

 

I feel evil smirking

it's whispering in my ears

The world looks so normal

But it's not as it appears. 

 

I feel evil moving

it's burrowing in my skin

I prayed and prayed to Jesus

But Satan let it in. 

 

I feel evil growing

in the hollows of my heart

Is it inside me or inside you?

I can't tell us apart. 

 

I stand out in the cold harsh wind

asking everyone my name.

The legions lockstep past me,

In the mirror we look the same. 

 

The serpent twists about me

and sings so sweet and low

It sings to me of knowledge

Of things I shouldn't know. 

 

I feel evil in me!

I cry, "help" to all I see

They look like me, I look like them

I struggle to get free! 

 

I plead to those around me

Their faces turn away.

So I take my gun and shoot them. 

 

There's just nothing left to say.

Well done, Jers!! The meter of this is like the black footfalls on the echoing stairs of the suspense you held. Step. Lock. Step. Lock. Woah - the end! Pshew, nice. R.
We all have a shadow self, equally as important as the light. Rated.
"Is it inside me or inside you?
I can't tell us apart."

That's the hard part, very hard to determine when almost all of us are guilty of our sins of omission.
oh that serpent.
his soft skin against your limbs..as he entangles
and slowly
consumes/

this reminds me of bob dylan's
"slow train coming"

"Sometimes I feel so low-down and disgusted
Can't help but wonder what's happening to my companions
Are they lost or are they found, have they counted the cost it'll take to bring down
All their earthly principles they're gonna have to abandon ?
There's slow, slow train coming up around the bend."


in, out, what is the difference?
Songbird - I was hoping for surprise ending...Thanks for coming by!

Erica K - It is in acknowledging and noticing that shadow that we can balance it with the light! Thanks for commenting!

jmac - You can even stop at "all of us are guilty" of something - and yet we are getting so very quick to jump on the sins of others!

James - Oh, YES!! Slow Train Coming...and it's still on it's way and picking up speed isn't it!!! "In, out, what's the difference" - EXACTLY! Thanks for joining in!!!
Good fit for THIS Friday!
