Midnight visits with feeble jaws,
while my teeth grind on white
my head has awaken, my body
A house is clouded with
my ghosts. Beautiful,
Numbing my legs with
a chainsaw gaze, I am barely breathing
Her pale hands reach out
my frozen plan. I am barren, dry of
The daylight brings demons enough, but
escape the night.
It comes as expected. Never without
cold sweats. Always.
soaked with paralysis, drenched
with the past.
I absolutely love this!
i like these lines: A house is clouded with
my ghosts. Beautiful,
disgusting! .. sends goosebumps 😉 great one!
The horror film images of chainsaws and ghosts and paralysis truly, for me, capture the irrational, yet all consuming, feeling of anxiety attacks in the dead hours of night. Very nicely done Maggie.
Can I please just have sex with your mind?
Lets do it.
AWESOME!!! It’s gonna be amazing!
Ooooh, ‘soaked with paralysis, drenched / with the past’ – fab – an instant favourite for me
I like. A chainsaw gaze… my, oh my.
surely you have heard Poe’s ‘Haunted’..not the olf Edgar Alan Poe but “Poe” the singer/songwriter…her CD that she put out some years ago was a point of genius although we waited for a comeback and nothing came…nevertheless her CD ‘Haunted’ was a masterpiece and for those whom never heard it–MUST….it is a psychologicial , emotional masterpiece…this kinda put me in mind of some of it..
That is a huge compliment to me because I LOOOVE that album! Thank you sooo much!
wow! to find another POE fan out there in a sea of drowning souls….so coool! Her masterpiece–a complete masterpiece she could not recover from…./bowing to you/lol
The last two lines – oh my goodness!
talk about words speaking to u… wow fantastic
“The daylight brings demons enough…” Now`s how that feels..
This really sucks you into its unquiet space. Well achieved.
‘drenched with the past’- beautiful
i believe our past can really scare us to death. you have captured it so vividly. i hope you are not talking about yourself.
This was a great read. I don’t know what’s more frightening, thinking what may have caused these strong images of guilt or the fact that it is entirely possible to be tormented like this.
Your words touch me!
I love the imagery. Really gives off a horror movie vibe. The past is truly horrific.
