They live within the shadows,
Shying away from plain,
Whispering to your hearts,
Thriving on your pain.
They cannot cause destruction,
Nor could they cause you harm,
They use you as their puppets,
Fool you with their charm.
They plump you up with spite,
Overwhelmed with malignity,
You can no longer survive,
You drown yourself in enmity.
A portal opens before your eyes,
See yourself reigning as queen,
They taught you to pretend,
Live is naught but a movie scene.
They fill you with delusion,
Feed you with their fantasy,
You believe all that you see,
Not what they hid beneath.
They use you against yourself,
Sink venom in your goodwill,
You conclude without a second thought,
Confusing what’s well, what’s ill.
They overwhelm you with agony,
Stretched far beyond your reach,
Your eyes blinded with tears,
Suck out your joys like a leech.
Suffering could transform a person,
They know it, oh yes they do,
Your sorrow fills you with anger,
Lashing out to those who hurt you.
They turn you into their puppets,
They lead you to your ruins,
Be you cause, victim or spectator,
They are behind your wrongdoings.
Life is more than black and white,
Life is more than a TV drama,
Stay on the path that leads to the truth,
And it would protect you in the arena.
I apologise for not posting yesterday as the circumstances were against me. So today I wrote a long poem with each two stanzas telling a different part of the whole story. I wish that people would be wiser when dealing with their wishes and emotions and not to judge a book by its cover. Life is complex and complicated, humans are different and diverse, emotions are powerful and blinding and within all that, the evil lurks and fill you with the delusions of an alternate reality. The enemies appear in all shapes and sizes, from the hateful and malevolent, the ignorant but well meaning, and your own confused self but it all begins with the puppeteer….
