Fear and Faith

(Written for the Poetry and Art Collides comp)

Her soul dripped through the cracks of her reality  
fading with the dawning madness that has not yet risen fully
from the depths of her deepest despair  
She stared at the inside of her mind - eyes tightly closed  
as demons painted macabre pictures on her eye lids  
taunting her through the gauze that refuses to block out the sunlight entirely  
Her voice weak from silent screams, she lips ached for protection  
from the demons that kissed words out of her traitorous throat  
out into the world she feared
Inhaling in short, sharp, agonised breaths she sought the gauze  
to wrap tightly around her exposed nose and untrustworthy mouth  
suffocation the risk she was willing to pay, if would keep the demons at bay
