The gate keeper is the one that takes people and animals to the after life; but the twist is that The gate keeper is lonely. For this I am the gate keeper.

I am locked inside.

This gray circle holds no one close to me.

I am alone.

 

I can reach out my hands and touch 

the edge of my circle to have no one

pull me out.

Untarnished

 

The incky black fluid surrounds my circle. No one...

any one? .... All of those beautiful bright lights 

float past and as I scream for them to wait!

They vanish.

 

I am sitting in this circle curled upto my chin.

No one can save me. No one will win. I sit here...

Perishing.

Perishing.

Perishing...

I am a demon.

 

I cough and stand to reach out again! I grab out of my circle to real in....

a knife.....

I am alone and no one can stop me, as my acidic tears fell onto my worn out 

jeans. 

 

Those voices of people judging,

judging, 

judging,

as I fillet away my....innocents.

 

I sit back down close to the edge now. 

I throw away the knife and shake. Only then did I see these dark

and broken wings.....FALLEN.

 

I raised my fists to hit my grey walls and only then did you 

spill forth....my other half. So cruel to me that I banged again

as you sat on the other side staring at me.....alone.

 

I remember. I am. I am to guide you to happiness

and swallow you pain. I am to stay at your side and 

be beaten until your life is forever...

Changed...

I am not god, nor demon, or Angel.

Not good nor bad.

I am....

I am....

I am....

THE GATE KEEPER
