Time unravels quickly around me.
Sand sifting through grasping fingers.
I reach for a moment, but it slips away.
How did I get here?

As Bones

Driftwood, bleached bone white.
Branches stark against the sand.
Gnarled fingers reach.

Tell me your fears
i will hold them
In a vault
Made of quicksand
They will lie
Next to mine
And manifest
Into monsters
To haunt
You and me
