Weapons Hidden

cliff faced fear, looming shadows, hard noises in the dark
faces roar, tigers chase tails.
sleep holds itself pointless, words stay still, weapons hidden.
breathe deep, hold in
(keep holding)
fingers clench, mouth gasping, starved lightness advances.
fingers unlock, tiger catches tail.
