Leaving Behind

Slithered from the underground depths
You smear your slime everywhere
Aberration of this worlds defence
You leak beyond borders and bans
Seeping into the crevices of life
Filling them with fear and anxiety
Stolen comforting touches and hugs
Robbed minds of peace and clarity
Allowed desperate monsters to emerge
And existing despots be uncovered
All we wish for is you to be
A very distant nightmare
Left behind the veil of the mask
