Amulet

I need another anchor To help keep me grounded Open to a new approach Chanting and praying Anything to keep me from fading Falling apart Walk right through me Rip open my heart I’ll take the pain You get the gain Love comes at a cost Calibrated clear vision Hyper honed hearing Hawk like precision…… Continue reading Amulet

Dose Me

A dose of reality Gasping for breath Drowning dreams Ambushed amygdala Cemented cerebellum Hijacked heart Supine soul Will my arms to relocate Caress and count protruding ribs Prompting pulse check Resembling week old road kill Weak unborn duckling Desperately convulsing out of my shell Time travelled to hell I always welcomed Pain as distraction What…… Continue reading Dose Me
