scream test

Scream 
That sound assaults my dreams  
Breaking through my skin and crawling up the wall

Watching me as my body falls 

Shaking me entirely 
Changing pitches 
My eyes are wide

If you look closely, you take a look inside
You turn me upside down
You sip my idle mind

You taste my torment 

It burns like rum going slowly down 
Slipping, sliding…slowing down
Your throat 

And you break this glass
You smash it on the counter 
The taste wasn’t to your liking 

But it is real 
and you Founder
