strange hissing sounds
sure, had brought me here this night
sultry atmospheric feelings in my heart
as if tearing through barbed wire
my skin twitched
In every pore and every nerve.
withholding to the carved door
I strived for sanity even though
I was spinning- hard and fast-
snakes slithered at my feet
coming in hoards
from their opened underground caves
fearing the darkness, I fell on the doorstep
rolling into fetal position,
willing the reptiles away
"when daylight broke, I was entwined
by ropes of my own thoughts"
