Survived this year

Don’t know how

Though kept asking


Blank voids, frosty eyes

Fires charring, deep insides

Swinging wild, hung by neck

Knot kept tightening

On the throat

Or had my mind

Gone insane

Conjuring tales

Playing games

I comfort myself

Think it aloud

Say it again

Again and again

Yet hide in shadows

Afraid of light

What it might

Reveal unleash
