Evening Reveries

As the sun sets and light fades away
A gloomy presence takes possession of the heart
Neither a smile nor a sweet thought holds sway
Perhaps it holds me eternally, never strays apart

Dreaded memories of the past, tainted by blood and violence
A vision of the future, hopeless and dark
Remembrance paralyzes me into inaction and silence
Fear and despair never miss their mark

Caged I am by experience and norms
Divided by desire and what they want
The possibility of escape lacks definite forms
Allowing the internal monster to continue its haunt

The intent is to break the chains that bind
Alas! They are but the offspring of the mind.
