it was withering ebony,
the tight-lipped shadow -
blinking, judging, neon yellow sharply
trailing on skin and bone,
surveying, teasing, like a predator would its prey;
and sterling fangs
all bared in the open
clear target, clear goal, nimble fingers snaking -
nails digging into flesh -
tight around my neck
suffocation sharp ;
“who are you, really?”
poison dripping in my ear -
withering into webs,
remnants of the person
i think i once was,
living only in faded memories.
