Cocoon – poetry #writephoto

I heard my name between serrated whispers

Those whispers crawled like slimy worms over my solitude

Disgust rose to my throat like mercury shooting up

And I saw fear peeking through curtains with conniving eyes

Rubbing its hand together, watching my next move

My wings started rolling into themselves from all edges, slowly

Every feather starting folding like those shy plants, one by one

I felt my body hardening and shrinking like I was in hot gas chamber

My wings eventually wrapped my entire existence into a shriveled cocoon.

Just to hide a million dreams my mind knit every day

To shield precious secrets of my heart, that can be muddled with one evils gaze.
