The Cathartic

The Cathartic

A Poem by Abraxasbird



The aberration of affection
found me; caught in purgatory
a time of disruption
a time of a burrow so deep

The aberration of affection
found a way to be
in a place of disruption
in a burrow so deep

far from the thin slivers of light
enthralled in the crawl
reaching for thin slivers of light
reaching, tempting the great fall

How did the aberration of purity
answer a call
that had yet to be, Pumice
The Universal cure-all
