Many creatures coming at me

Menacingly crowd around me

From another room – In another house  

Still, I can’t breathe – calm air

Small pill becomes tranquil island

Avert my eyes – sharks in the water

Stop scaling Everest, say skin and bones

Murder fear inside me – more pills, more

Stop, stop, stop – fear keeps you alive

Evicting monsters – moving in meds

Best to be calm on the way to the end
