Shame

That figure stands in my mind
Forever, never leaving.
Troubled thoughts
Shall not cease.
My soul and body is weary
Of this wait.
Into the abyss
My strength has receded
To the depths of isolation.
I now see
I was disillusioned,
Perturbed,
While led by confusion.
And all the while
That figure,
That saturnine figure
Glares down upon me.
Even when its image leaves
I still feel it’s presence
Its unholy essence
Vile and discreet.
It harasses my mind,
That daunting shadow.
I cry and beg
To be left un-tormented
But it remains,
Shall always remain.
Haunting my footsteps,
Haunting my sleep,
I hear it.
That saturnine figure,
That shadowy figure,
Within every step
And every slowing breath,
It remains.

About poetryoftheasian

I've been writting poetry for only a few years as a little hobby, and have had a few published in a small poetry contest. I currently want to write more and improve as much as I can. Any tips or feedback would be much appreciated. It is possible that after a few weeks I will revise parts of some of my poems.
