When I was little,
I used to run up the stairs,
To evade the demons that lurked in the darkness.
Afraid that they’d devour my limbs,
But they’ve since migrated into my head,
Some nights, I still lay in bed fearing for my life.
I see myself smirking in the mirror,
Holding a knife to my throat.
Others times, I’ve been thrown into holes
By Shadowy figures
Only to find
That I’ve been digging my own grave.
I really do get super existential at night. Then I start hyperventilating. Then I realize I'm getting older faster than my dreams are getting acocmplished.

Then...then....I write about it.

Realizing you're getting older faster than your dreams are getting accomplished. . . that can be a terrifying thought. I try not to go down that path cause I have similar reactions. Sometimes it is inevitable though, isn't it? This is a great way to express all that you're feeling. I love the phrasing, the tone, the word choice.

It is. Everyone goes through it, I'm kind of at peace with it.

I'm glad you're finding some peace with it. I have semi-managed it myself, but not completely.

Meditation helps. Kind of forces you to deal with yourself.

I know that feeling that fear can shorten your life span. Too much negative or horror movies on the telly. I plead guilty.

lol. You misunderstood the piece. Read the description. :) It has nothing to do with being scarred of the dark.

It's a sad poem, but despite that it's beautifully written
