You’d keep running

The demons claw from within
gnashing teeth
drooling obscenities
talons raking on bone.

The screams belittle and hurt
The gurgles reverberate with pain
And the colours swirl
in the chaos of nauseating movement.

I appreciate you asking me what I’m thinking.
I know you care, asking if I’m ok.
I wish I could explain
I wish I could show you
I wish you could help.

I can only say,
if I gave you 24 hours in my head
feel 24 hours in my body
experience the madness within.

You’d come out crying for mercy
while you ran away
to never return.
