Blue

eye-1173863_1920 (1)

it bares its teeth
and I remember
I feel its weight
in my bones
I spew its language
brown and muddy

I am lost

it settles in my skin
and I shudder
I miss sunlight
I miss fresh air
it digs deeper
and I weep

lost

a familiar presence
this beast
my constant companion
drawing fine lines
that slowly crack
along an old path

These are the footsteps of the mind
