Icky Itchy Night

I feel like I'm living on the edge of fingers 
Somewhere between
Before and After, 
Like nails overgrown
With very little paint left in them
And a whole lot of scratch.

Icky Itchy Night - by Navoneil Bhattacharyya I feel like I'm living on the edge of fingers Somewhere between Before and After, Like nails overgrown With very little paint left in them And a whole lot of scratch. I've got an itch the size of a continent On the back of my skin Outside my reach, And the only other person alive Is asleep. It's my turn to keep watch Over the noises of the night - No longer delicate sounds Like crickets and bats and fireflies But a crescendo Of revved-up bikers And dogs chasing them In packs of ten, With fangs The size of tongues Snarling at the quiet of homes. #yqbaba #writersofindia #writersofinstagram #night #nightthoughts #nights
