Poetic Escapes


These demons devour β€”

eating from the inside out

as I record each bite


They drip, spilling from my open mouth

onto an unblemished white page

swirling, slashing, satisfying


the need to leave their mark

to adorn the blank page

with twisted threads


This, the ultimate poetic escape
