by HeavenSmile

Through the taunting door
They come
Dusting the place
With dainty feet placed precariously
Throughout the place
Crawling in all nooks of comfort
I hear their squish bellowing
Through the taunting door

I was on clouds of silk
Reading life
In the pages of walls
Envisioning girls to play
Makes my nose twitch now
For I know of a nest
I was on clouds of silk

My eyes close
It’s so in front of me now
The sweet nectar keeping me awake
That sugar from hope
I live now
For their next cruise
My eyes close

All down my spine
With hairy tentacles trapping me
While dreams whine
All down my spine

At least now my mind is gone
Lost in sulphuric clutters
Breathing in their next feed
They must go!
While my eyelids clears
A windscreen to see their
Familiar squish

This is a perfect example of showing in opposition to telling. Wonderful subject matter, the more you write the more you will find that certain words, ideas and phrases you like more than others,,,,,then you will find your"voice". You have done a wonderful job with this poem.
