They Close In Tight

They close in


Slenderly they wrap themselves

around you vein

by vein…

Pouring their sanguine goodness

Wet and sticky down

your throat…

choking you on their


Gently filling your stomach

with love..

and hate…

And always twisting…

And warping about…

to bend your soul…

Until the only cry to

escape your mouth…

Is more silent than

a tree…

falling alone in the woods…

And more lonely….

as well…
