Liquid spirit 

Stuff, Words

Unwind me // Wind me up

Shut me off // Tighten my spring

Put me back into a box // Break my walls

Cut my vocal cords // Tie marionette string to my tongue 

Knit my lashes together // Paint my eyeballs pink

Fold my ears inside out // Make the mice roar

Suffocate the light // Set fire to the world

relief – poem

Art

naked and cold a lonely night

deep darkness hiding the sin

concealing the poison

head spinning, heart beating, blank mind

this unexpected but awaited escape

one last thought

quickly thinking it through

looking for that ounce of regret

not finding it

and then grabbing the bottle by the neck

bending a fork

liquid relief

naked and cold

relief
