Scarlet Letters

THE UNEASINESS

Dark and hollow
Dusty and Musty
Murky waters beneath
Little scary imps
With horns and tails
Smell of rotten mess
*
The Void
So hollow and alone
With specks of fire
The pain etched within
*
The demons 
Threatening to damage
The uneasiness deep inside
The will to live and un-live
The desire to be and yet unseen
*
The truth
They run away from
Laughs at them in the face
Swamps their souls
The past haunts the present
*
The future
Shaded and Jaded
Foggy and unclear
Of a people
Whose past they forget
Who fall into the same mistakes
Who get swallowed by the same ditch
