Before you read this, I wish you to know,
That hope lies within us all,
That the greatest keeper of hope is faith,
And that through faith, we draw strength to face the darkest of trials.
Despite our beliefs.
Faithless (A haunting)
and tears drop
No leaps to take
No faith to hold on to.
Depression heralds its coming
Desperation is its conduit
Distress and despair, the signature it leaves.
I have seen it in my nightmares
Sensed it in my dreams
It stalks my every waking moment
A peripheral dread
glimpsed but not seen.
For seven days it has haunted me
Tortured my Psychê
Sipped into every conversation
Drained all my self esteem
and pushed everyone away
Tonight, it all culminates!
I wonder why I took that dare,
Why I called that dreadful name
Three times I whispered to the dark
Three times I summoned my doom
And now there’s nothing I can do
But face this horror that I rue!
I’ve slumbered into a restless sleep
An insipid darkness thickens beneath my bed
Oozing out onto the floor
The air goes cold
I wake with a start
It’s here! I sense it
My pupils dilate
I can see it taking shape
An obsidian menace
Blacker than darkness!
I do not know any prayers
I do not know who to call
I am alone
I’ve always thought it’s better to have faith and be wrong,
Than to be wrong, without faith.
Veiled spiritual realm
Are you real or are you fake
Do you not exist
If you do, I must prepare
If you don’t, then just in case
I’ve been hinting at horror throughout this week.
Finally my horror tingles have been sated. I hope this scares you a little, then gives you hope again.
Stay safe everyone, have faith.
