The Evil In Me

October 6, 2015 | By

A dark poem unfolding some mysterious nuances of the mind that aches when it hurts someone close.


I venerate the dark and silent lanes

Asking myself , why I hurt him again?

Yet the inner me gloats in his pain.

I nurture and feed the demons inside,

But I hurt seeing the rift in relations
growing far and wide.

I nourish myself on their tears,

I grow stronger nourishing on the fears.

I venerate the dark and silent lanes,

They bleed to death and I stay sane.

The evil in me multiplies by leaps and bound,

I can listen to all the muted shrieking sounds.
