Peace of Mind

I’ve always had this problem with nightmares:

They continue long into my waking hours.

Along every road I walk

Dark creatures lurk behind a door

Waiting.

Waiting to pounce and shake me from my blind happiness

And drag me back to Hell where I belong.

It’s hard trying to live expecting

Dark creatures with ten heads and pointy claws to latch

Onto your heart the second you feel hope.

I try to fight them with sharp chasers

But they only disappear for a little while.

Then, they multiply.

I’m left to battle again,

Distraught and alone.

I’m not asking much,

Just some peace of mind.

But, in my mind,

I know peace has died.

And, my heart thinks,

Wouldn’t the world be better with one less cynic, anyway?

    Everyone is hiding now,
    The wordpress-o-sphere plagued with terrors.
    Something is happening,
    And the sensitivities if the poets
    Are raising heckles.
    Beware,
    For this dread is not yours alone,
    Nor is it unfounded.
    A darkness has risen,
    And we,
    The warrior poets,
    Are in shielded on the front lines.
