Sleeping with The Enemy

Sleeping With The Enemy, joys of joel poems, musings, ramblings, split personality
Sleeping with The Enemy – when you are your worst enemy …………

Leaving the glitter of the masquerade ball
this time not cautious if the mask will fall

as you sleep your way to fantasy kingdom
but woke up screaming for ultimate freedom

seeing yourself at the shiny mirror
hearing its voices you question in horror

why a different face welcomes you in the morning
when you know for sure you’re all alone that evening

So you open the window and look at the trees
to prove you’re awake and feel the breeze

unlocking the door and walking to the sunlight
spreading your wings like a new butterfly

but a strong wind stop you and halt your flight
you went back inside and see not a light

why a sudden darkness confuses you now
you just woke up and it’s still morning somehow

you look in the mirror and see the clock from behind
it’s almost midnight you know it’s a lie

you run to the backdoor and see if it’s true
that the sun is gone and why it’s totally blue

until you fell on the floor and see
the mask that you wear last night at the party

but who is wearing the mask you’re touching
when memory and reality are both contradicting

fate is your destiny and insanity is certainty
because you are sleeping with your own enemy.
