OVERCOME

shadowy thoughts
scratching
my skin thin door,
blood stained claws
seeking
a crack to open wide,
yellow teeth
sharpened
on careless bones,
breath of death
misting
my warm air,
grey mouth
drooling
the hunger of a beast
released
from the depths
of nightmare’s lair,
guttural growls
echo
within my fragile chambers,
no escape
from dark demon
who needs to feed
on tender
tired essence
trembling
with fear,
nothing left to do
but to feed
this empty appetite
and be overcome
by the midnight shadow
sweating
black seeds
of chaos
while I sit
in my sanctuary
deep within
and watch myself
so I can overcome
this darkened moment.
