It calls all of us.

This noise in my chest;
A ravenous scratching
Like claws from within.
What is this happening?

The strangest sensation;
This cavity rattling.
My blood all aflame
And vision abandoning.

Everyone's vanished
The daylight's dampening.
All beneath crumbles;
Sky above blackening.

I don't understand!
It's so very baffling.
Could they be right?
I've joined the Unraveling?

unmasked delusions

I like the rhyme: "a ravenous scratching ... What is this happening" and very unsettling with that last line

unmasked delusions

I forgot to say in my comment that I agree; it seems to call us all at some point in one way or another.
