emmalene screaming/

©2021 Michael Raven

self-inflicted wounds
ripped from my sleeve
bandaged in
barbed wire kisses
i am alacard screaming
for my never dreaming
screaming for my emmalene
never hurt touching
never hate loving
never reach wanting
in this uncaring house
of mirrors that
traps me underground
with two twisted smiles
slipshifting out of phase
while the dark days
eighty days of night
chill my hand clutched chest

no
no
no
no
[shriek]
no
