Wretchedness 

Standard

Wretchedness has

Shackled me to my bed today.

She is a most

Undesirable visitor.

Knows me so well.

Waits until i am so weak and weary,

Deceives me

And preys upon my thoughts

Piling on one after another.

Smothering me, keeping me writhing 

And gasping for oxygen.

(She knows me so well)
I open my eyes and try to look away

But I get entranced by her siren song,

So deadly yet so serene

And i must just see her,

Must hear her.
My body settles into the sheets.

Gone.

Come time, minutes or hours

Or longer

Til I overpower her;

Wretchedness.

I rise to touch the sun, my eyes catching 

Glitter that remains

Twisted in my sheets,

And I am momentarily blind.
