The man in the mirror
is my worst enemy
I'm crippled by fear
and insecurity
I'm comfortably drowning
in my selfish thoughts
waiting, praying for the day
when all this stops

I wish I could take off this mask
I look like a disgrace
but I've worn it so long
that it's stuck to my face

but wait...

Is it a mask
or is it just me?
Now I'm not sure
but it sure is blurry
L Oct 2016
he's a skeleton's shadow
born from human remains
black stained wrists
of all mistakes he's ever made.
his face is distorted
sinking in red static
masked by a trance
of blurry panic.
hollow demon eyes
his cold stare is deadly
I no longer cry
feeling so empty.
hissing in silence
a serpent's tongue
of my only friend
a lonely one,
will catch his breath
and count to ten
until blankness subsides
and the parade begins.
swallow me whole
he's all that I know
I can't bear to hear
deafening, slow,
"no fear," we chant.
no fear.

i’ve got so many questions
yet you expect me to answer them all
in a moment’s notice

but i’ve got to face it
they won’t be satisfied
and i’ll have to catch my own breath

it’s up to me to do what i’ve got to do
i want to be known
through love and respect

nearly every day, weak and beaten down
that is how i am
hiding behind the mask of another day

that is not to say that i feel worthless
my optimism is here to guide me…
and somedays…i wonder if faith will…

i’ve got to destroy my friend,
the one who seems to care about what others think,
that Demon In The Nighttime, that is what I like to call him.

2 in the morning
contemplating questions when i should be sleeping
but that’s okay, it’s another piece to my endless puzzle

i’ve got her
the one i know has my back
to help curb my anxiety from exploding

my fears..
my anxiety..
**** em’.

gotta **** em’
gotta **** that Demon
he isn’t gonna get a ****** thing.

another morning
day has begun
sun is shining on the ground

i won’t be asking what will i do today
i will be asking what can i change today
change to reduce that Demon.

i care what you think
i may not act like it
i may not show it
but i do

a single comment about my hair
can make me hide it in despair
with the ever so lame excuse
which no one notices me misuse;

'they don't look good today'

a single comment about my weight
can make joining a gym my fate
with the ever so lame excuse
which no one notices me misuse;

'i'm doing this just for myself'

a single comment about my overbite
can make me get braces, real tight
with the ever so lame excuse
which no one notices me misuse;

'it makes closing my mouth impossible'

bluuryface was actually a lie
despite the fear it gave us;
tweets from @bluuryface pretending to be @blurryface.

there are supposed to be underscores between each letter but apparently those don't show up here.
