Flight Response

Eyes closed

shadows creep

strength deposed

softly weep

muscles tense

never sleep

moments minced

terror seeps

haunted dreams

bloodshot whites

lucid screams

constant fight

severed spine

lancing pain

forgotten crime

sadistic game

irreverent thump

limping lame

mushy lump

taxed brain

flowing ink

seconds respite

knowing wink

botched flight.
