It Does Not Fade - Poem by Nero CaroZiv

It does not fade
It does not let
When it gnaws when it hurts
It does not pass
Day and night with me it lasts
Like my shadow
Or my image in the glass
When I laugh when I smile
My pain with me to torture to beguile
It is so insistent
It is utter and persistent
May be it will release its grip soon
I will have relief and peace by noon

Yet it does not fade
It does not let
Being alone is like being dead
It drives me sad; it stirs me mad
I am losing my mind
Where have I tossed my head

It has no reasons it mocks all senses
Me alone while all eyes around devour me by glances
This emptiness, this suffocating fence
It is foul; it is the demon dance
Against this dire consequences
I have no remedy I have no defense

Is it a fate, is it a joke, a destiny hoax
To prison my life under a nightmare of locks
What is the end of it; what is its progress
Can I ask for a pause?

Bad does not fade
And foul does follow its glare
No use to sit, to wait, to mourn, to fret
But from the deepest inner me I draw strength and dare
