UnSkull

Caves run deep.
Never are eyes shy to show
how sly they are
even though
their caves run deep.

There are leaves that
tumble about;
they are leaving
the smell of decay
and weaving
in unsuspecting nostrils
that unabashedly cringe each time
that stench treads,
stomps,
jumps
on their delicate nerves.

Small specks crawl
beneath gooseflesh
and what's
more -
they are beginning to grow larger
than ever before.

Voices grow louder,
music becomes dull.

Vision is clouding,
eyes retreat back into their caves;
temples stricken with sharp pain.
Where are those pills, again?

    Just so that everyone knows, this poem is inspired by migraines as well as the phenomena known as formication and phantosmia. I have never experienced the latter two, but I take great interest in such psychological problems.

    Oh my Gorden lol, Jorden seriously, God this was absolutely breathtaking, i was waiting for a 201 poeem and here I got a master piece!

    This aint only dark, but clear at the same time, I could smell stuff while reading your poem, and see images, not pleasant ones tho lol, this was just worded in a very flowing way, and the internal rhyme was magnificent, i hope you are aware of your talent.
