corpselight serenade

i woke drowning
an ocean of torment
sloshing as i tried
to untangle myself
the blankets tied
around my wrists as
i feverishly pulled
the headboard creaking
as the wet wheezing
blossomed into full
panicked thrashing
the world glared in
strips of photonegative
abandonment through the
blinds as the periwinkle
suffocation of clouds
reflected the smothering
in frantic waterboarding
a distillation of terror
as a fit of coughing
forced a tsunami to crash against a series of broken
ribs piercing the umbra
between lividity of dream
and corpselight serenade
