Crawling

May 17, 2008

this is a continuation of the previous poem – shadow

——————————————————-

i stood there
in total awe
frozen by shock
completely drenced in sweat

i couldnt believe
what i saw
my inner self
once completely pure

in the few years
i was on the sides
i sold my soul to the satan
i sold my soul to the power of darkness

now, at a time when i wish to live again
i am being put to test
by what was once mine
by own my self

i watched
unable to move an inch
of what has transpired right before my very eyes
still in shock

i try to call the powers to help me
i try to summon the gods in the heavens
frozen in shock
words failed to come out
words that i could so easily command
deserted me

left to fight this battle all alone
still frozen by shock
i watch the shadow rise high into the sky
crawling its way over my new found happiness
slowly engulfing it in darkness
slowly, once again…

to be continued…
