there are smells

14 Oct

there are smells

that can cut the skin

burn the eyes

and consume your soul

there are sounds

that can break your bones

sever your tongue

and leave you breathless

there are sights

which freeze your brain

and strip off your skin

the world is not your friend

it is an alien place

for which reality

if not fatal

is at least tough

on the eye, the brain, and the skin

and fantasies give no solace
