The Monster I See Reflecting At Me… Poem by Sebastian Melmoth

The Monster I See Reflecting At Me…

Rating: 5.0


Who is this monster I see reflecting at me feeling sick at the sight of my own appearance?

Heart ache voices covert the hush-hush of dejections scorn

Body frail weak moulded by stress, worry and poor health both physically and mentally reeling

Bad wiring, I guess short circuits blowing fuses popping like a light show in my brain

Laughing on the outside masked the dispirited soul peeling back the layers of despair hiding deep within

Springboards of seclusion obscure dark and endless thoughts travelling into the fog at 100 miles an hour

Unhappiness of the dreariness the anguish the mastermind of affliction

Tortured and deranged with sullenness blackouts come with the heaviness of being

Scrapping the barrel searching for the glimmer of hope to fill the void to go a day where I don't feel so bad

No longer wanting to be a metaphoric Frankenstein's beast, the monster I see reflecting at me

very well written in a poetic manner, no one can write this amazing moment in a poem a part from a professional poet, used some surreal and magic reality form, excellent 10+++
