flayed alive~with the talented Indie

strikes the knife cutting the thick air with a hiss
pain growing, I've had enough...

tension builds within
clawing it's way up to my tongue
where I spit razors

the venom drips
the damage is done
it's Helter Skelter inside me
and I want to peel off my own skin

just so I don't feel trapped in my own body
I'm dying to break out and touch the sky
yet I'm tied up,
my insides wriggle like snakes eating me alive

shreds the terror within
it has a will of its own
curled into a ball
I fade into the black where I scream

the shadows know me they writhe
coiling up then bite
I feel what others don't
I vomit nothingness
and scream silence into empty air

anxiety demons terrorize
the bright world is full of haunted souls
they pick and pull at me
injecting me with fear of the unknown

my fears tower while I shrink
down into a pit of despair where I can't think
emotional vomit spews forth

I try holding on to things I can't control
but it's like trying to tame a tornado with my hands
I'm left with is broken limbs
holding emptiness

my hurt turned to anger
I am scorned
