Familiarity's New Frequency

Lingering within me
Teasing me; echoing
Every bit of pain.
It knows all my secrets,
And steals every last
Drop of confidence.

A pain so familiar
Has a new frequency…
Its higher pitch so
New and dear,
How easily it intrudes as I
Let down my guard.

Its the one thing
That will never leave
Me; never lie;
But always cheating.
Only showing its
Ugly face at the
Worst of times,
Forcing emotion on mine.

A game I can never
Win for the fairy-tales
Of everlasting joy
Have faded with the
Years gone by.

Artist's Description

An older work. Written in May of ‘07. This is a rather personal piece…I couldn’t sleep until I wrote it down. I don’t write poetry too often, but when I do it’s usually not all that bad.

Partially inspired by my friend at DeviantART
