 Reflections of My Heart

Just Beyond  ღ KKD ღ

Just Beyond

I know you are there
I sense your presence
I feel your eyes piercing
with my every move and essence

Your face is burned
into my very soul
you won't take me down,
my survival is my goal

I feel as though mirrors
occupy my every space
every place I turn
I see your lurking face.

There is always
this smothering mist
as though the end
does not exist.

You are like
a poisonous lizard,
and your protector is
nothing more than a buzzard

Who sits upon a limb
as tho it be a throne
just waiting to pick
the innocents bones

I feel you closing in
with an erie thud
I try to escape but it's as tho
my feet are stuck in mud

I attempt to run
to find my escape
but the evilness engulfs
like a heavy black drape

Just know God is my strength
and guiding shepherd
with him at my side
I shall remain centered

He has showered me
with a love so pure
and will give strength
to help me endure

So to His hand
I hold on tight
and wait for the end
to this evil plight
