Serpentine path bit my feet
at each step
Poisonous winds kept hissing in ears
when words were gasping for breath
Dense jungle of blurry thoughts
was lying ahead
Demons of fears were dancing in head.
Courage was my only friend
Lexicons like glow worms
emitted light of life
in darkness of death.
Fixing my eyes on bright metaphors
reciting verses I dared to tread.
