Visions (Prompt 7)

Yellow eyed demons

disturb dreams

their spines curve like questions

they dig their nails in open sores

that once contained flowers

These demons drag down spirits that would otherwise soar

Wickedly they unbalance my life

trapping my words in unspoken verses

Sounds become silenced

I can’t move and I can’t sleep

they lay on top of me

licking my ear

unearthly beings

whispering reminders that

these exploding nightmares are my reality

and I am only delusionally happy
