    “In the Jaws”

    Awakening in the Jaws of a sleeping beast
    Memories of terrible dreams haunt me
    Dreams that tear myself down
    Dreams that break away the light

    Then I realize this sleeping beast
    is my dormant demons taking an uneasy slumber
    That mouth, a cavernous domain in which I seem trapped
    Is hot and stifling

    A gaze out through the slightly parted teeth
    I see a world of joy, hope, ambition
    A world of humanity
    And it comes to me--I am a prisoner
    Forever trapped in memories stronger than me​
