A/N: Written on January 13, 2011.

A ribbon of doubt
Weaves its way
Through my mind.
You are waiting at the other end,
A smile on your face.
My stomach becomes
A hollow pit
In the dark earth.
Bats fly out.
The words stumble across my lips.
Smile turns to smirk,
And the roaring in my ears grows louder.
Wading through the fog.
The ground quakes and shivers
Beneath my feet
Like the scales of a baby dinosaur
As it abandons its egg.
I am spineless and weak.
You notice and
Reassure me
With a noose tied around my neck.
