I am slowly suffocating
under a thick veil
of ghosts
weaving themselves
around my face and throat
like spiders' delicate
yet eerie webs

and I only breathe
to inhale more of the dust
that has collected on memories
best left forgotten
(if only I could forget)
but the memories are woven
into the web
that clutches my throat
and clogs my nostrils
and drifts about
in this infinite fog surrounding me
