• Grabbing, sucking, deeper,
    Swallow me and eat away at what I am,
    Not a norm facing me.
    Childish gasps at the air from time lost
    before, it has gone astray and written it's own
    story of broken strands of life.
    Being filled in where the cracks are inside, just as
    courage and trust have uprooted themselves
    from the solemn homes they have built so close to me.
    Driving your mind from the cords of your nervous system,
    Claw away for the moment of silence
    where your soul will not scream from the terror of
