Numbguts

This is cowardice

I scramble for cover

Every breath is a strangled whimper

short, sharp and afraid.

This sick feeling

claws at my hiding place

behind me, a precipice

I’m tempted to fall

My numbed digits grasp at the hilt

of a vapour sabre

My weapon of mania

but

dead in my hands
