Nights and words

I know the pain,
Irrevocable moisture on pillow.
the fights between the pills and cactus
morning lust with skeleton.
Quick thick penumbra,
a hysterical sigh each day.

purgative blood makes you strong i think
something out there makes you more black
and you hold and clasp,
till you gulp and swallow

i know that surreal romance,
clicking noises
of seizures and tears,
of ink and words.

  1. Do you think the more we acknowledge the dark, the more it grows and expands and utimately stretches to its threshold, tearing itself apart for the light to sieve in?… do you think acknowledging the dark indeed has a positive affect on us just like the concept of acceptance works for us?

      1. You are right there. I remember when I was doing my Masters, we looked at the Reader Response method of interpretation which means as you probably know that once something is written it then goes out of the writer’s hands completely, and however thevreader unteroretsbit is OK. I am a bit nosey though lol and always want to know what the writer neans! Actually sometimes I write stuff and don’t know what the hell I mean myself lol. Yes, I did like this piem. Great stuff Devika x
