The memory of you binds me

Holds me like my body is wrapped

In a thick layer of plastic film

*

The more I struggle, the hotter

It gets inside my cacoon

The sweat beads and clings

*

I can not see, except through

The bars of my bony fingers

As they form a knotted cage, over my face

*

I peer through the gaps to see

But all I catch is glimpses

Of what my life could have been

*

The power drained from my heart

As it slows to a morbid standstill

Still beating but tormenting me

*

The life that I thought once mine

Is no longer, and I see my love

As if a movie, in my cluttered mind

*

Tales of days gone by, opportunities

Missed, to never be taken

Chances hidden, hesitation now loss

*

Heed me children lend thy ear!

Do not remorse a lost chance

For they will not cry for you

*

They point, mock and laugh,

They watch you as you age, become feeble

Your bones and mind weak with time

*

Then they gain satisfaction from you

As they see you stumble, fall, pray

Hope for a redemption that is never coming.

*

They thrive on your fear, your aches

Your pains physical and of mind

They watch as you lose everything

*

Your hopes

Your dreams

Your love

Your life

*

They feed on your failings

They fill with strength of being

As they feed on what's left

*

Your Fear

Your despair

Your hate

Your loathing

*

They separate us like a herd

Targeting the weak of body

Then the weak of mind

*

They go for the young

The not so sure

The displaced

*

Don't let them get you

Be strong of will and mind

Be true to who you are

And never let the demons in
