Ever present, effervescent presence -
You linger long after you’re gone,
Leaving a fiery trail of emptiness,
Heartstrings tugged at and undone.
You remain – untouched and unmoved,
You stay hidden behind a violet veil;
You watch, observe carefully
As I wither away and become frail.
You match every step,
You know my every move;
Undeterred by ignorance,
You’re a constant I cannot elude.
Consumed by hatred,
You’re driven by greed;
Severed as I lie in your path,
Satisfied, you watch me bleed.
You stay long after I’m gone;
You blend in with the void…
You’re poison, a sedative scent.
You’re a stubborn stain,
A constant, nagging reminder,
You’re a scar that refuses to fade,
A memory that won’t be blurred.
You prosper with fear,
You feed off my weakness…
Evidence of my crude existence,
You’re an insatiable darkness.
