the 'it' word


Today I am sharing a short poem that I wrote recently. Hope you enjoy.

 

the darkness,

it follows me around

everywhere I seem to go.

it is reality

yet prances in my nightmares

to and fro.

it stalks me 

and its always in the way.

maybe if they looked, 

or if they even knew

they would know what to say

but don't get me wrong

I manage to tuck it away 

into drawers,

my notebooks, 

and my bed at night.

because I like to pretend I am the one winning these wars.
