shadows wrap tight around my cracked bones,
pressing in against me,
trickling through my bloody memories.
invading everything.
nothing is left innocent;
every part of me tainted,
every piece of my life stained black and red.
the thick mist pours out of me,
flowing from my eyes,
spilling out of my lips, clawing past my teeth and tongue.
everything i've ever had is lost to it,
hidden beneath the ugly darkness.

and i am consumed.
