Vomiting Vile Visions

Vomiting Vile Visions

Fires fly as fire-flies fight away
dreams of dark dragons.

Mother made me make a
Promise. Pray, play, pen poems
She said. Surely, silence shall not save
A boy bloodied in bed by biting bats.

Taking tranquilizers to tame the tiny tyrants
I quiver, quietly questioning my quagmire.

Crying cannibals creeping from catacombs
Come closer and cruelly
Feed me forbidden fantasies.

Terror. Tranquilizers. Twins this time.

Stunned. Spineless. I shit sandstones.

Fat fires fly as fine fire-flies fight away
dreams of dark dragons deviling with dreadful demons.

Lost, lying lifeless, looking no longer
Sleep slowly steals my sanity
Satan, sneering, satisfied, silently steals my soul.
