Where do I begin?

I lost myself

somewhere along the way.

Leaving light for dark.

Weeds in my hair

and soot in my throat.

Chasing after butterflies

disguised as passions.

Arrogance unfurling their wings.

Off the beaten path.

Spending time in cocoons

of the past.

No where I needed to be.

I should have

followed the Ravens

for guidance.

They don’t wear masks.

They dress their hunger

in their eyes.

They are dependable.

You know they will still

want your flesh

even as you die

piece by rotten piece.
