Poem: Falling down illusion

Source

Falling down on my knees

waiting for a miracle...

Falling down on my knees

with my eyes open wide,

watching the ground get closer,

feeling the pain inside...

Couldn't see his disguise.

Couldn't see the devil in his eyes.

I'm lonely,

in this desert,

blinded by all the lies...

A demon calling from inside,

followed his voice

and burned in hell

with all the desires

and passions of the world...

Illusions

and kisses,

rehearsing some play

in which I had no part...

Stood in the stairs

watching the hoods...

Stood in the stairs

watching myself sleep...

Lonesome and innocent

and my energy and dreams,

dissolving in the sky,

losing consciousness from reality,

insecure and afraid

from touches I left behind...

Falling down on my knees,

wishing someone to rescue me,

aching for help...

Falling down on my knees

in the darkness,

in silence...

Stood in the stairs

watching my demon

carrying my dreams...

Stood in the stairs

trying to understand,

wishing for him to be my angel,

dreaming of my angel...

Screams in a dark forest,

cries in the night...

The sound that makes

my shattered heart...

Inside,

my soul breathes the silence

and prays for light

as he comes back

to haunt me

and I can't set myself free...

Falling down on my knees,

over and over again...

Standing in the forest,

lost, waiting...

Falling down on my knees,

never easy...

Stood in the stairs,

listening to his promises,

listening to his lies,

unable of saying goodbye...

Swept into an everlasting fire,

trying to set myself free...

Craving an angel

Craving a touch

Aching to be saved.

Praying for the sun...

Falling down on my knees for you.

Falling down on my knees for salvation...

Could feel it too algarveview. Indeed, the anguish was palpable through the monitor screen. Redemption and relief should be very sweet.
