Foolish Mistake

Sat, 05/25/2019 - 21:34 -- xmapaox

It was a foolish mistake to think that I could escape from you.
Even if I wanted to,
You seemed to lurk in the shadows.
In the dark I could hear your laughter;
Knowingly mocking my vulnerability.
And when I thought I finally ran away from you,
You’d leech on me once again injecting me with your toxicity.
 

 

It was a foolish mistake to think that I could escape from you, when I am you.
It is my own thoughts that fuel you to drain the life out of me.
Sneaking up behind me like the nightmare you are.
Inhibiting me from remembering the light that shone through this dark sky.
 

 

It was a foolish mistake to think that I couldn’t escape from you,
Especially when I am stronger than you.
Although it seemed hard for awhile,
I realized that as time goes on, you were easier to ignore than I originally thought.
Maybe its the years that added this wisdom, but I definitely don’t fear you anymore.
I am no longer that child that would fall victim to your cruel views.
 

 

If was a foolish mistake to think that I couldn’t escape from you.
