Warm blue

I am the human embodiment of fear and trepidation.

My body is a reeking cesspool of panic so I lie awake in bed like an earthworm lay on cement and

      rot

 

I tucked myself away into the scum of the pond 

and stared at the fireflies

 

Trees bent down to me and stole the thoughts from my brain

they sipped them like cool rainwater and flung them to the sky as they left me

 

The heavens stole my words as they formed into clouds

Engulfing, raging clouds

 

And the world was torn from light for eight months. 

 

Those angry eyes,

those angry eyes 

 

The sharp knife in the corner of my mind

is the dull reminder of 

       you
