The belly of the beast

It was dark inside the belly of the beast

until the light came in

skittering off walls that once kept me warm

scattering blood that fed my soul.

Through the cracks  the light came in

upon hands that rose and flailed

clawing its way out of darkness

only to fall…into the void again.

How heavy are the hands

as they scrabble their way to light

pausing only to hiss and seethe

how warm it was in the belly of the beast,

how warm it is in the belly of the beast!
