Facing My Demons 7


We would rather stand knee-deep 

in sludge


Colder than is physically possible. 

I should be numb

but I can feel disturbingly warm currents as well. 

The levels rise.

The reek intensifies.

And yet we bicker.


Wall punching

Gut wrenching sobs

Cruel words that neither of us mean

Emotional destruction

is what we choose

rather than facing our demons inside.
