Shadow (ii)

The night drags over me
Counting affirmations
For fuel

Dreary tones of solemn doubt creep into my ears, drumming my heart

I can see the monster in the mirror
And I needn’t look to see
It is you
It is I
We are the death and the majesty
The silky pain that rides across my skin
The red rhythm in my lungs
And the icy stare that makes it all go away

You give me life, and I give you sight
Together we dance, in breathe
and In stillness
