Devistation - Poem by Scarlett Voight

Your heart sinks
The mind turns dark
Blinded the instant you turn to face it
What is it?
Subconsciously you hear the tear
It seeps into your bones expanding
Becoming heavier
It's draining you, and your breath leaves
Heavier than the world
It doesn't crush you
Not yet
The pain must be felt, must be heard
It cries and bites you deep
Yet no blood is spilt
More than anything you wish to see it
Iniquity drops from the sky
Floods your lungs
Your body quivers
Its sinister voice growls and moans
Your teeth grind, the jaw, it tightens
Strapped in a chair
Fed from a cup of your own demise
You writhe with a daunting cry
Helpless, blind
Just the way it wants
