So many times, I tilted,
learned to light candles
to banish the dark,
now my child is perched
on the edge of a pit,
I throw in wicks,
but they have nothing
to light them with.
Giving Up the smooch:
Venomous snakes conjured up in my mind
from my anxieties, frustrations, and negativities.
They slithered in my nerves.
They threatened me with their hissing sounds and flickering tongues.
I begged for emotional support
but all I got in return was
empathy as frozen as Tundra.
They tied me in a gnarly knot and bit and swallowed my stimulus.
I am now like an old plaster crumbled from a wall
about to smooch the death willingly.
But I know after this smooth, I can never smooch
So, from now on, I will keep on
my emotional state
in my diaries
till my creator doesn’t
take me away with him.
