I feel the eyes

All stare at me

Nowhere to hide

They see into my mind

Know they're alive

Look not glazed

Like he who died

In the picture frame

My photo too will be a ghost in time

Ugly thoughts

Betray to them

They see all

All they see

A fool

Kneel on the floor

Take from them

The power held

My whole life shared

Plunge the knife so deep

Bathe in the pool

Turn out the light

Still they stare

Drift into sleep

Meet them there

Thriving on the endlessness

of dream


Footsteps going nowhere

Fall hard into the bed

And wake

I opened not my mouth

They heard me scream
