NaPoWriMo Day 9:

They lurk in shadows,
waiting and watching,
knowing;
fangs bared in silent snarl.
I know this, I feel it
in paranoid prickle
of neck.
I cannot hide,
only anticipate the
traps and pitfalls of mind
(the constants of my journey
with bipolar, depression,
and anxiety). They
seem living entities with
which I always contend.
They know how to bide,
patiently waiting as they
watch for signs of
weakness underlying
artificial, superficial
smile.
This is the never-ending
hunt, the forever-repeating
cycle that is my
life.
