The Animals

Big claws,

Alert, yet soulless eyes,

The animals have come to eat.

They come to invade,

to eat positivity

to choke any light

to feed off love.

And love becomes empty

replaced by fear

emotions detach themselves

and take up residence in the dirt.

And they run  with any diamonds

that were ever in your bones

and laugh at any light

only leaving you a blank expression

and an emptiness that scares the world.

They fear you are an animal too,

With tiny eyes that  only see shades of black

and claws to kill anyone close.

So the people stay away.

And the animals

need to be starved,

and tamed

and love will be their only poison.
