I Know How You Feel

Accidental Poet


I know all too well

The demons that haunt you

Guilt their favorite weapon

Yeah, they haunt me too


I know how you feel

A prisoner of your past

The friends you thought so close

Somehow, they don’t seem to last


These demons try to steal your power

You can feel it in your bones

In a crowded room you look around

Still, you feel alone


You wonder

Why they single you out

You’ve done nothing wrong

 But of your fault they boldly shout


So, fear not my friend

Take your power back

For all the good you are

Your confidence they can’t hijack

        Is false guilt worse than actual guilt? I must put down this hefty psychology book! heehee.

          Orchi, you've been reading up on psychology? Wonderful. Maybe you've learned a thing or two about KP? 😁

            Can I ever fathom her out? Why, yes, simple in a way. her outlook on life is 'Me ,me, me!' lol.

              Me again! KP must be in that book somewhere - 700 pages, and that's only Volume 1. I've not got Volume 2 of the same size!
              Even the author says 'Who wants to read 1,400 pages on psychology?' lol.

                Oh come on Orchi, not like you haven't the time to read it. KP's counting on you. 😁
