dreams, wishes, hopes

i wished
a gnarled wish
a broken dream
let my hopes
become unfurled
against a backdrop
of nightmares

in this pit
of infernal sobs
the hoarse screams
of the damned
the skittering legs
of unseen monsters
just within the shadows

i found myself
tucked away
in the webs
of misery
that tie down
any thing
not bathed
in sorrow

it was here
i found her
in that subtle swirl
of damnation
and salvation
that makes up
her every sultry gaze

i was granted
the wish
i spat in anger
the dream
came true
as it burst
from my chest
as my hope
became another
battered loss
against the backdrop
of nightmarish devotion
