All Consuming Questions

Written by: A Rambling Righting Riley - Shauna Riley

Questions
Like poison injected, coursing through my veins
Like soot inhaled, choking the air I breathe

Questions 
Like screaming, deafening in my ears
Like oiled cogs and gears, cranking in my head

Questions 
Like thick, enveloping fog, blurring my vision
Like a ravenous cancer, eating and spreading 

Questions
Like a metallic taste, needing to be spit out
Like flooding my dreams, stealing my sleep

Questions
All consuming power, sealed behind ruby lips
Sown tightly shut, with needle and thread
