The Shadows Torment

By Damien Knight

((From a dream I had))

Slowly approaching the dark mistress
My own mind in distress
Passion outweighs infatuation
Screaming in utter frustration
Her anger I see has no bounds
Her stare louder than any sound
I have been her only dreams
Her life was with me it seems
A thousand lies on who I am
No one knows or understands
The burning fire of hell in me
I am blind can’t you see
A soldier dead cannot be dying
A man like me is always lying
And so I continue my masquerade
Playing at this game of charades
But It infuriates her even more
And she slams shut the door
To the heart of my salvation
My own secret adoration
No I pushed way to deep
And now I get no sleep
If only I could reverse my lies
Then I as the shadow wouldn’t die
*I am the Shadow. I am a Lie*
