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


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
