Bedeviled Scratches

Laying scared, clicking magnet coffin

shows, black and white, thick, eerie, claw marks

damaging a brain, a demon within,

scratching electrical storms sparks.

A round white pill, within me embarks

with a purposed journey, storm to kill.

Empty mush brain, sentences try to fill

drifting void, paying the shadowed cost,

loose the Devil Claw,  my souls, tortured bill,

safe dulled shell of mind,  sacred fire, lost.
