Am I?

Am I a wraith,

Testing their faith?

“Careful,

He may make you tearful.”
Am I a horror to find

Their “heavenly minds?”

Am I what blinds with my open mind?
Am I the cold-sweat

That slithers down their spines

Leaving vines 

Dragging them to forget?
Or am I the terror 

That feeds on their despair,

Even though I only care?

Am I just an error?
If so, 

Am I hell bound?

Am I a daemon also?
What am I?

Only a man,

Trying not to fly.

–K.E. Oskold
