“The Darkness of Me”

“Edge of Darkness” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019

“The Darkness of Me”

Concealed within society,

A familiar darkness breathes.

Sinister in other views,

It defies conformity.

Astute disguise belies deceit,

And fulfills unending needs.

Disabused of nagging truths,

Avoiding peer propriety.

A darkness breathes,

A darkness breathes .

Familiar and foreign,

The darkness of me,

A self-inflicted horror.
