The Critter

Vol. 4: Inside

Darkening seasons and chillier nights encourage a turn inward and a reflection upon insulation, self-preservation, and isolation.

 
 

What is it to be within?

Doubt



A collar tight

Chokes air and voice

Leaves questions snared

In every choice


And shackled so

You cannot move

Down either path

That you may choose


And feel the sting

Of sharp regret

If you should even

Take a step


This thing,

Rotten and grotesque

That sits heavily

Upon your chest


And plagues you so

Upon your quest


With thoughts too tangled

To get some rest




And does not heed

Your strained behest


A quiet plea

Insist no jest


Your wish to banish

The monstrous pest


To banish, to banish

And breath again

To feel your feet

Move freely again


To be able to sleep again

With no weight upon your chest
