Poem: This Need

Like all the blood
rushing like a stream
this need
it runs deep

Starving for it
Even when I
just ate
Stomach growls like
as my pillars of sanity

I can’t
say no
I don’t want to
say no

It tells me
that I’m free
despite the chains
around my wrists and feet
It says if I want to
I can leave
And these words
I believe

I believe

The Devil on my shoulder
The shadow in the dark
The chill when it gets colder
The break of a heart

This need
comes calling like
a howling through the trees
or a siren that can
empty a city

And my bloodstream
begins to run
as my heart beats like
tribal drums

This need
claims to want to heal me
But this need
I think is trying to kill me

I can’t
say no
even if I want
to say no

Hey guys! Well, it looks like we’ve made it to Monday. So… I guess it’s time for us to go back to work now… Anyone as excited as me? *The world’s smallest violin plays over distant sobbing.*

No, I’m just kidding. My boss leaves town next week so I’m about to have a whole week off 🙂

Anyway, hope you all have a good day! Stop back by Wednesday morning for another poetry piece ❤ Check out my last post, Changes for updates to the blog and schedule.

Talk soon,
