Pale Horse

 

Underneath my blackness, lives a visitor

She is The Pale Horse

She whispers to me “Nigger…get back! You’ll never make it!”

I close my eyes

fight her

punch her

kick her

pull at my brain…make her stop…Pleeeeeeeease!

I wanna be in peace and live in ease

But she cackles her deathly grin and sneers

“I’ll never leave. I’m here to stay. You’re stuck with me, I’ll never go away.”

So I run nowhere with quickened feet

Only to embrace my imminent defeat

Scream with no voice

Cry with no tears

Sleep while awake

I’ve done this for years

Accomplishments  forsaken with a dirty glance in the mirror

Her reflection stares arrogantly at me

“Told ya. You see?”

I call upon the ancestors for strength and I win…sometimes

But I’m tired… worn out…immobile… atrophy has set in

May I sleep forever?

Will I smile never?

Too much to be done all at once

How do I rid myself of my unwanted roommate?

She’s here to stay

As she says, “I’ll never go away.”
