I could only describe it as a chasm that kept growing,
A monster that never got fed,
A hollow hole that had no end,
I couldn’t shake it,
The fear that crippled me,
The constant taunting of my own soul
I cried for it to stop,
But the feeling grew stronger,
My deepest fear stood before me
It started at me,
As if it knew me
I tried to look away,
But I couldn’t
It looked too familiar,
Like a distant person I once knew
Could this be an attempt to save my soul?
Without hesitation I ran to it,
Ran to the fear that stood before me,
I wanted to embrace it,
Desired to know it,
The feeling would subside
I held out my hand to touch it,
But then retreated.
I was in the middle of my stride when I woke up.
You see, even in my dreams,
I was too afraid to face the truth.
