Turnabout

By J.C. Duval
I refuse to go back into the dark,
To that cold, isolated box.

After what may have been an eternity,
I found a crack and broke free.
I've commandeered this vessel and
Set a new course.
From your new position,
I hear you protest but
You seem to forget,
I captained this ship
Long before you arrived.

I refuse to go back into the dark
To that cold, isolated box.

You snuck in when I was distracted.
Set up shop deep within
The core of my being.
Slowly you corrupted my soul,
Tore away at the very fabric of
Who I am.
I mistook your voice for my own.
Each time I followed your counsel
My world grew a little darker.

Yet I refuse!
I refuse to go back into the dark,
To that cold, isolated box.

I see through you now,
I know what you are.
I'll give you no quarter, no parley.
You will find no shelter,
No safe harbor from me.
I will track you to
The furthest corners of my mind.
I will haunt you as you have me.
Just you wait, for when
I have you finally cornered,
I will never go back into the dark.
To your new, cold, isolated box.

Distraction will never cause me to falter
As I stand guard over you forever.
You will whisper, bargain,
Plead and threaten.
As you do I will grin and laugh.
You hold no power over me.
I will not be swayed by you,
Your languished cries fueling my resolve.

Welcome my friend,
My constant nemesis,
To the dark,
To your cold, isolated box.
