in which i fall

in which i fall

A Poem by freelancejouster







coughing up my tiger blood,

i should have maybe asked for help,

when phones weren't an arm's length

and several lifetimes away.


a break in insanity,

may have helped me just a little,

because there's nothing left, here,

for me.


because i've dried up almost everything.


there's a fetid puddle somewhere,

covered in bloated, noisey flies,

who'd love to eat my eyeballs,

if i ever ventured just too close.


and the scenes are growing hazy,

just as i hear a clatter and a shriek,

as my fat and angry servant,

discovers my disease.

a few small references to one charlie sheen and some ideas from my own tortured mind.

Well written. There's something about dark poetry that always intrigues me to read on, and yours is a perfect example of that.

really well done. I don't have anything clever to say...just...WOW! Great dark venture into the addicted psyche and the giant and constant fears that go with such an addiction. Cheers!
