The Bitter Banshee (a poem by Jack)

You laugh at my fear… As though it were only my problem….

As though my vulnerabilities don’t affect my actions… Towards myself..

Towards you…

You dismiss it… Absolving yourself from all future transgressions…

The steady flow of continuous traffic balances my thoughts…

I did this to me… And I can’t escape my fate…

I asked for absolution… But the future only wants to humble me.. Taking my joy and bringing me to bended knee… Crushing my spirits and playing pity-pat with my heart…

Your warm embrace can’t save me… It never could.. Because your cynical smile exposes too many truths… Too much darkness…

There’s so much black I lost myself in you… I can’t find my way out…

My light is extinguished inside of you…

I’ll die in you… And won’t see the light again until you spit me out…

As the prophecy goes…

Cursed by the lips of the crying
Banshee… Brought to fruition by the desires of an ambitious man…
