Blame - Poem by Tallie Pascoe

I can’t blame the blind
for never noticing
as i stand dumb
silently screaming.
A mirror of forever
grants me a vision
and all i see are shadows.
Shadows and black
Showing all I lack.
The skeletal form of a vacant soul.
I don’t blame you, the blind
for not being able to see
after all you can’t see the mirror
you can’t see what darkness stands
on the other side of me.
Or peel back the mask I have worn
pasted and moulded and sculpted my smile
through years of torment
and scars.
Deteriated beyond decay
exhausted past sleep
drained beyond pale
paranoid past ghosts
and scared thorough demons to myself
to the next Hell i cross.
