2009 A Recovery From Her Spiderweb
It had been 10 years
A cold February Kentucky wind
Through a panic call
I guess united by fears
Silence, on a dark night drive
Clarity, lost through the wires
Arrivals to the death of Indigo.
A foolish man falls prey
To a Jekyll and Hyde constellation
Her screams, her pills, her knives & blades threatening
I have to be bare like the roses
And now throw me to the pond,
Leave me a fish wanting to die.
In obscurity, floating with a manic dead mind.
You tried to weaken me, with words, with threats
Driven me away to a trail of trauma
Like a long walk into a viewless forest.
Planted seeds of fire to my heart.
Trust comes on like impulsivity now
In a fright,
For what is real
And what is a monster with soft skin
I blister to my hands from a false touch.
That spreads like a virus.
