Poem: Who Stands There

Who Stands There Poem

In defence we habit
Striving to save ourselves
Our souls, neglect
And perceived less
Growing like monsters
Hungry for revenge
An appetite for anger
Towards those close
Or far

Someone says, something
Against the regret we harbour
Emotions grow hungry
To devour them wrong
Highlighting the signs
Pointing at their failures

Eroding the trust
Closer to lust, and hate
Than love, and love lost
Out beyond thoughts and words
Reflecting in mirrors
Lost.
