Image for the poem tilt


tilting reality I look skyward and scream
crimson truths sink its teeth in
taking hold of the soul
expressions of guilt float

where is my mind?

sinking in the mire
I struggle with anxiety
she smirks at me
I glower back
my feelings blown out of proportion

tag your it

my thoughts turn dark
echo sanity inside the black
tilt your head back and laugh

sinister stirrings in the yawning terror
slither inside my mind
I wink at the fear with a thought I got this babe

tight fist anxiety grins at me
knuckling down I bear it
velocity building quickly climbing
assaults the senses
numb inside I curse the edge

sanctity in the brevity of thought
I shrink in the shadows
losing myself I cringe

carnal infliction
till death as the saying goes
you can leave
me...I'm stuck with myself
there is no retreating

I take a stand in my shoes
with thoughts of backup
you can't have today

today is mine
