The Delicate Equilibrium

picture source:

The battle within me has never ceased,
my wounds lash out, the innocents receive,
tempting demons I know can destroy my heart,
live the lies on my skin, carved by you in the dark.

I’ve seen the truth when freed from your lies,
felt laughter as it flew, changed light dark skies,
lived my dream, it may seem, were it not the truth,
side-by-side, pain and pleasure, within, they me rule.


  1. Fine reflection. At least we glean a truth

  2. Pleasure and pain sure rule every beating heart on this planet, friend Shadow. Love, cat.

  3. this is one of your best poems! I loved its every bit!
