Nightmare In Paradise - Poem by nisha dyrene

By a formless darkness
By its all seeing eye
Into lethargic surrender

I’m being hunted
But I do not run

It chases, catches
Consumes, conquers

I fall apart
Piece by piece
A wisp of a whisper
A snatch of song
A sliver of starlight
A world of wrong

I come undone
From the inside out

I sense the danger
But still I stay

I’m courted by destruction
Caressed by shackles
Wooed with incantations
And loved by an addiction
