Still Trembling

Updated on June 4, 2012

What have I become inside my reflected flesh.

Shivering in trickery to despise myself.

Doings blemish my smoked dark cheeks.

Lips quiver plots with poised words of lies.

I feign for pleasures of bad desired feelings of good.

It crawls lightly under my itched irritate skin.

I feel the shakes aching for wanted continuous relief.

Oh how I love the relief I can give to me and myself.

Toxins thrive in my spiral spun veins to puncture my spirit.

I’m awake alone when I fall in a sleep of my own.

Awaken in days with closed eyes wide open .

I can’t see who I have become to control my image.

I don’t know myself and It’s taken power on me.

      Voronwe - Thank you so much for the comment. Funny you ask that question. I just finished a hub on crows. I think crows are very fascinating based on they are the smartest animals 2nd to us.

      Enjoy if you can...

      Great poem, cruelkindness! The self-loathing realization but the horror as well upon seeing one's own self-destructive inclination. Always many votes up. Love the pictures you have an affinity for crows(ravens)?

      They have a unique relationship with humans- wrt interaction and cultural evolution.

      There is no such thing as non-sense are expressing what many actually feel. Those with or without mental illnesses. And a picture paint's a thousand words. For myself I can relate. Great job hope to see and read more, Monica :)
