A Poem by Worms

theyre everywhere


just a show for those who want it to be more

that is what the world is today

and I see that it is all an elaborate play

There is darkness all around me


I look at the neon city lights

as down my path I wander

as I look to the sky, is this all, I wonder

There are demons around me


I look to my past for answers

but none of them come forth

I wonder about all I have and what it's really worth

There is darkness inside me


I try to fight this battle

but I have already lost

but I will not give in, no matter  the cost

There are demons inside me


I look far and wide for help

but it does not come

I am all alone here, alas

I must succumb

Wow man...the theme of this poem haunts me. The imagery was horrific. You have amazing talent. The struggle of keeping one's humanity in this world is brought to life. You did some thought provoking work. I love the simplicity of this poem, but the serious issues that lie underneath the surface.
