My claws pick at the scabs of old wounds.
Blood trickling into rivers of insecurities

as the past reflects off the light of the moon,

transforming and morphing.

Fibers of fur sprouting from your skin,
matted and tick ridden.

Everything you thought was truth
is blurred in the darkness.

Brain birthing false memories
that instinctually bite back.

Until all you can smell is the scent of your impurities
trailing the tracks of your inhumanity.
