burn

So I decide to wrap myself up in cotton wool and let the cigarette burn

Watching it whilst it aches burning orange

Lighting flames, exhaling

Breathing monstrosity

Feeling a release but a burning inside

Choking on dry soot

Quenching senses that were never there

warm as my cotton tears


stillness

Sometimes I feel like my chest is deep in captivity

And my head is the only thing keeping me there

Sullen scars with eyes that tell no story

self pity pain

Drowned by drunken thought

Feelings and words muddle

Gripping at my stomach

Ripping tendons into tenfold

Screaming summers of dead names

hollow sunken wound

deep left to fester

until pain is only a thought


the taste

I can bellow

And scream

Rip the water out my eyes

Drag the needles out of my skin

And still be smothered by your

smouldering scent

Heart gagging at the

Bloody thirsty stench

clinging to me like a coffin

Ripe

As beads of sweat sway down my body
