i light myself
on fire to illuminate
the darkness billowing
throughout my mind
a siege of sins
in quiet apprehension
feral mongrels
salivating at the gates
waiting for a break
in a haze of greasy smoke
to savage fleeting wonder
a subcutaneous flame
sizzling deep blue
a frozen inferno
where skin splits
hope drips in thick
globs of sputtering pus
oozing slowly into
the shadowed mania
wrapped tightly around
a delirium of dream
