Guilt


I lie still in bed
Awaiting sleep
But something sinister
Takes hold of me
It tears at my chest
Devours my soul
Swallows my heart
Swallows it whole
Ribs snap
Flesh rips
Blood pours
It takes a sip
Changing its figure
It crawls inside
Sows me up
I am still alive
But deep in my body
It scratches and paws
For an eternity
My interior is raw
