A person contacted me today via email and flooded memories caused this poem.

Darkness penetrates the veil,
awaiting the moment
that it is lifted.
To expose your heart to the world.
In an instant life changes,
and you become overwhelmed
with the superficial aspects of life.
The mundane and unnecessary.
temptations fill your head with nonsense
leading you to stray off your path,
like the bad boy in your class
getting you to do his dirty deeds!
When ever you try to resist,
there is a force that
keeps you coming back for more.
What is this force?
Is it the addiction to lust,
that keeps you on your toes,
always trying to bring you down,
going out on a limb,
causing that hunter in you,
to search and destroy
your most hated enemy.
Only to find it is you that you hate.
Resentment begins to surface,
then anger and grief,
of a lost life
that never had a chance to live.
You set out to do the right thing,
to live in complete harmony,
then something from your sordid past,
comes back to bite you in your ass.
You can never really be done
with those demons,
they are strong and you fight them
till you are weary and weak.
Rising above it all,
takes so much of your time,
it drains your energy,
and leaves you spent.
One day these demons
will be slain,
but each day I continue to fight
to stay alive and well.

I believe most of us have been there, when our ego is so full of resentment over a loss or injustice. It's best to move on away from it all. Living in love is the best way to get over such pain.
I wish you much peace, love and light,

If you can't relate to this you're no longer alive or you're from another planet.
Strong, strong strong, Ragno.

me too fighting those demons daily, but I hang in there. Loved this poetry from you. Write more good ones soon.

Your creative poem sounds like a drama on a spiritual stage~
I really like it! But do be kind to yourself. Just leave your luggage on the path and keep walking. We're all to a point captive to our carnal selves.

you will prevail, honest and heart touching poem.

I always like to say: my mind is a weapon of mass destruction primarily employed in defeating itself. Why are we so flawed? I completely connect into this. There has always been a dark power in my life which takes out little pieces of flesh just when I least expect it. Hard to stay on course. But the lesson I learned is that everything has a beginning, a middle and an end. Sometimes, I have to just sit with things and let the feelings pass, like a storm. Good poetry.

What you are writing about is depression. It brings any ones demons out there. I have an answer for you, PRAY. This piece of writing was well crafted and heartfelt.

Oh boy, Ragno, do I ever relate to this hard-hitting poem. The target verse as far as I am concerned is "causing that hunter in you, / to search and destroy / your most hated enemy. Only to find it is you that you hate." Yes. I fought that fight and only recently, last October, became aware of that completely and, although they are not gone, like you said, my demons have quieted down to only a half-hearted roar from time to time. Good introspective writing.
