The creation of sanctuary

I have been beset
By circumstance and memory
The barrier between
Night and day
Gone
Terror monsters feel free
To languish in
Either realm
Creating havoc as they please
The mantra; “get a grip”
Does no good
For as I look out
My view is skewed with
Another layer
Fear pierces at the
Very heart of all that
I see
Hauntings from another time
Now tear at the fabric
Of my existence
That which I thought
More real is being
Shred into a displaced past
So it seems I cannot escape.
The soul knows
I must not
Give weight
Give substance to
This devil
That in fact his
Mere emergence from
Then to now
Signifies all is not well…
Give me a break!
I know that…
Yet
With the passing
Of each moment
Another part of me
Dissolves with it
Losing a sense of who
Questioning if I
Even am.
My reflection unrecognisable
A mere shadow
A ghost of possibility
Yet I resist the desire
To give in
To lay down and drown
Is not within my DNA
So I write
To create a gap
In a time
A space in which I am safe
