Agony’s King

By Damien Knight

Do not act in a way unnatural
Do not avoid the gaze of my eyes
I have spoken only truth
Here we are let’s not live lies
I regret pushing away again
I meditate and in vision see
A face small, round holding tears
Fighting hard to ignore me
I see myself too gazing at my phone
Constant for that notification
Speaking less and less, I understand
But my heart needs that affirmation
Do I call out, or let it go
I keep seeing these things
As long as you are happy and free
I will keep being agony’s king
