Untitled (when demons come searching)

Spread the love

I, see them waiting, blending into the shadows
I see as they gesture with petulance and malice.
Their fingertips trace trepidation unto my soul
I, knew none could hear a scream that pierced,
probed into the conscience like shards of glass.

Bittersweet and strange feels oh courage which
leaped into rib cage, as though a bird fluttering,
I urge my heart to remain conscious and aware,
implore to build a wall that leaves out madness.

I hear your voice calling from amid the darkness
I, extend out a hand oh and I offered you a smile,
watch as your tears bathe wounds of year passed
I, laugh as you reprimand which echoes as relief,

‘I have learned to battle demons that breathe.’

  1. Fear enhances our imagination and troubles our inner being. However a hand of friendship mollifies and soothes others as you show so well in this poem Sanaa.
