Found

Time … to open
My eyes…
Time … to finally realize
I am the monster … glazed in guise
Time … to take responsibility
Of your slow demise
Of your haunting, screaming, aching unconditional agony
Time … has stopped
I am horrible
Hyperventilating, breaking…
Crying—smiling, faking 
Time … to see where the snake slithers tonight
Smirking in its venom of spite
To see myself crawl in its loosened skin
And become one with its kin
The slits of his eyes frighten me
But I welcome his sick visions
Who made these sticky decisions?
Time … to do something
To help you—to break me to pieces
I am the slime where you have broken through…so revolting
Time … to shake the sand away
To relieve the burning eyes from the blindness
Time to dip them in the cool water of action
Time …
To close up again
I wimper in the dark like a lost hound..

I am so afraid
Lost … but always found

    Stunning and powerful write about the painful process of self-realization, Laura (My interpretation anyway)...Key phrases to me: 'To help you--break me to pieces' and 'Time to close up again'...yes indeed...one dose at a time - Tim

    Better to be afraid than apathetic Laura - I love your expression of emotional dilema - I am intrigued by the snake symbolism - perhaps you have reptilian beauty - J.A.B. %
