the mobster


the mobster


it is hard
it is very hard to realize
that the stranger that i thought was coming for me
that sinsiter mister in the shadows
the fabricator of my teardrops
he who makes the fear drop so deep within my belly
was always here
the footsteps i have heard
the silhouettes the words
were always here with me
the chill in my splintered bones
that keep me frozen and alone
have always been inside of me
i am my own mobster
i wake with blood in my bed

This is a very very deep and simultaneously scary. The plunge of your self realization is thrilling and this is a very well written piece. Adding to favs!



yeah ? thank you very much. this is one of my personal inventory poems, lol. i do my finger pointing in the mirror. the last line may be a bit over the top but it is how i feel and the fright is real.

I keep forgetting it's getting cooler in the rest of the world now. In FL we're looking for some relief from this oppressive heat! Puts my spirits in the doldrums. Best
