A sickness inside.


It started off as an invasion
ships in the shape of opinions
carrying words as cargo
missiles shot off
loaded of angst and hostility.

Through the openings
the missiles created
the ships entered
allowing the habitants to wander
off the boats they went.

As they drilled their words internally
busting open the doors
to the place the brain stayed
they began a total invasion.

As others invaders made their way to the heart
cutting holes large enough to sleep in
cubbies to keep them warm
a place to feel at home
as the rhythmical beat
put them to sleep.

In time as the invaders
relieved their waste
and set up a permanent space
the blood began to change
rustic and smelly
and the insides shifted
opening up space
slowly the invasion
involved into
a sickness inside.

Thanks for reading.
