knotted.

feeling frayed
along my
quivering edges
pulses of cold
voltage
attacking
bare nerves
nervous
but in that nagging
everything
is falling apart
nebulous
insidiousness
a constant whisper
fraught with
sullen peril.

feeling frayed
afraid
tattered
scattered
left afloat
on choppy waves
searching for
the shore
or a single beam
to guide back
the map shows
serpents
and i can hear
the dusty rattle
of scales
off
the starboard bow
and i need
to know
safe passage
exists.
