in a matter of seconds

Photo by Rahul on Pexels.com

evening fades into my eyelids
as I close another chapter
with torrid metaphors
scalding the inner walls of
my sacred tomb

and the wings are being ripped out
by the scavengers
with eyes the shade of my
darkest fear

listen,
this silence is beating against
my ribcage
and I am being pulled by
her nightmares again
