    Darkness

    Darkness is a blanket
    that does not give warmth.

    Heartache is
    a bloodied violin bow
    drawn across
    a wounded soul.

    Hear the echoes
    of her agony.
    Listen to her loss.
    It washes out her eyes
    and fills her mouth
    with salt water.

    Oceans of pain
    wash over her.
    Tides rise, and
    like other flotsam,
    she is taken out
    to sea.

    The sea is darkness.

    And darkness is a blanket
    that does not give warmth.

    Lair

    Dread-filled dreams
    disturb me
    and seize my sleep.
    Cobwebs clot my mind.

    Blood-red spider
    sucks my life away,
    then drags its bloated body
    into the
    darkest depths.

    Venomous heat and fear
    cremate
    then recreate
    me.

    Rotting breath
    that you breathed into me:
    poisoned tongue,
    twisting and pulling,
    while I went numb.

    I am an empty shell,
    snared in ghastly gossamer.
    I can’t escape
    the steely threads
    you’ve wrapped me in.
