A Poem by Angeliki Largatzis

These shadows..
They crawl and they creep,
Into my heart
As they eat what is left.

These howls..
They inch past obstacles,
Up my throat
As I struggle to get them out.

These traumas..
They pull and they tear,
Into my mind
As they replace my thoughts with filth.

These faults..
They wrench free of their chains
Into my entirety
As they devour me alive.

"howls...they inch past obstacles" Fantastic line in a very relatable piece on the effects of trauma. Great work.
