and goddess,
this isn't something i can
sweat or starve out of me,
i'll have to write and it will
be madness,

see i've often thought about
placing my head in the pestle
and mortar, i wonder if i could
grind out the hell inside, become
a red pulp on the worktop, and
even the oven keeps tutting at me,
it's so easy, just open the door
stick your hand in, feel his forked
tongue on your palm,

orange lover, you
know you're
a coward
for this


and it's true
that the dead are never really
silent, they grunt and they groan
in their damp soil sheets,
toss and turn over
again

(fill the bath with water, and just drop me in it)

I love those lines so much. This poem was hard to read (as in, the content made me sad for the subject of it, be that you or some imagined figure) but I still enjoyed it. I think writing should be challenging. You have such a powerful way with words. I'm not sure you know how many people you touch on a daily basis with your work.

Keep strong :heart:

Things that I find you're not able to, as you say, "... sweat or starve out..." are addictions. That's a scary thought, to me.

It's nice to see you be a little more expansive. You have such lovely language. :heart: Have you ever considered writing a story? Flash fiction even. I'd be interested to see how your imagery and sense of rhythm would play out in prose format.
