“The Unknown Feeling” by Robert Rumery

The Unknown Feeling

What’s this feeling,
All I can see is darkness,
Like my eyes,
Have been sown shut,
There is a fine line,
Between insanity,
Between darkness,

I think I’ve crossed the line,
The voices in my head,
They’re always talking to me,
It feels like a thunderstorm,
Inside of my head,
A whirlwind,
Inside of my own mind,

There is a psycho,
He lives behind my eyes,
He just wants to come,
Make his face known,
To the world,

Is there a way to stop this?
What is this feeling?
The Darkness inside of me,
It’s coming out,
It wants to be set free,

The light betrays me,
All there is now,
Is the darkness,
That always finds me,

Should I embrace it?
I could form something with it,
When in this darkness,
I can finally see everything,
It’s all clear,

This darkness I feel,
It is my weapon,
My power,
My talent,
My Curse.
