Stuck ~ & done.

My teeth ache
From all the pain,
All the strength
I’ve been directing to
Hide my tears

They were relentless tonight
Like every other night
And the barks of trees
I loathe to the core
Stood mocking me
As I let the the nightly
Termites
Pluck my leaves
But by bit
Until there was nothing
Left
But a vacuum of guilt,
Of an ominous stupor
Making me dream of
Black butterflies in a
Wave of fire,
Tell me how do I escape
The land of my desire?
The life of my design?
The world inside my mind?

-Nameera.
