"Some of the best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller


The walls were swimming with shadows,
Trying to claw their way out.
I could hear their tap...
tap...
tapping.
Trying to tear their way out.

I sat and watched them.
Laughing...
Mocking...
Knowing they'd never be free.

They screamed their retched screams,
Refusing to let me pass.
I clawed my wall,
Trying to find a way in.
Blood stained my fingers.
Smearing on my walls,
Still I clawed.
Tearing...
Ripping...
Guaging with everything I had.
I named her Serafina.
A shadowed figure erupted from the wall,
And I swallowed her.
Forcing her to share my body.
She controls me now.
And I turn and watch her smile at me.
I see her turn and walk from me.
And I bang on the wall,
Tap...
Tap...
Tapping.
Trying to claw my way out of the wall.
