HAUNTED by Abhiraj

    Sharp teeth and locked eyes,
    bruises all along my thighs,
    running
    away from the noises and screams
    but there’s nowhere to go.
    how do you escape your demons?
    how do you escape the world
    if you locked yourself in?
    i think i am
    lost in your eyes.
    but wolves are
    running
    after me,
    the wolves
    of our past,
    wolves
    escaping your mouth,
    wolves of sad poetry,
    as fire escapes your hands
    yet you always keep them
    near my skin.
    it hurts,
    but it’s better than the snow
    falling from the ceiling,
    i’d rather burn out
    than never see light,
    fright
    is now natural to me,
    for the wolves
    have blood running down their teeth,
    probably from their last victim.
    wild things,
    wild thoughts,
    chasing,
    running,
    never stopping,
    not even to catch their
    breath,
    because they’re so determined on
    catching mine.
