The Enemy

The Enemy

A Poem by Nervana Zahran

Your subconscious mind likes to play games,
It creates alternate realities,
Stagnant thoughts that refuse to leave,
Nightmares that are bittersweet.

Just run and don’t look back,
You’re being chased by too many things;
A tiger, aliens, your own emotions..
Your feelings know no exit,
You’re not in control.

An apathetic face reflecting the silent screams ,
Everything you avoid manifests in vivid dreams,
You can hide at night but the sun will shine on everything you’ve locked away,
Smother you in every way..

Your subconscious mind loves games,
A ruthless game that has no rules,
If you win, you lose.

So keep on running my dear,
You’ll soon stumble on all your fears,
But if you fall, we’ll catch you..
Yours is not the only monster I’ve seen,
I, as well, have a monster in me.

My mind lives through it's brutal games
Never rests
Or takes a second to breathe
Impossible to tame

The track is empty but I don't stop
I run as fast as I can
Racing my own heartbeat
Attempting to pause time
Me, my heart and this brain of mine

Throughout the horizon, the wolves appear
Engaging me into prison of memories
A distracting obstacle in my way
Yet without hesitation, I run away

A beautiful light sheds on your face
My monsters and yours are one
Since the day we took that silent oath
To stand together, hand in hand
Facing the world, one word at a time
Vanishing our monsters
Escaping reality, the mind of ours


Its beautiful :') it seems effortless
I can easily relate too
I love the words you write and I love that you shared them with me

we all have a monster within us... and you emphasise this point very well..

Poetry can take away their hunger and help to keep them sweet...

All Good Things,

not a problem
My mind lives through it's brutal games
Never rests
Or takes a second to breathe
Impossible to tame

The track is empty but I don't stop
I run as fast as I can
Racing my own heartbeat
Attempting to pause time
Me, my heart and this brain of mine

Throughout the horizon, the wolves appear
Engaging me into prison of memories
A distracting obstacle in my way
Yet without hesitation, I run away

A beautiful light sheds on your face
My monsters and yours are one
Since the day we took that silent oath
To stand together, hand in hand
Facing the world, one word at a time
