Needles and Narcotics

My blood is the ink in my pen.

It pierces the skin.

This is my confession

my minds way of releasing the aggression.

Moving in,

filling the syringe;

with more nonsense

dumbing and numbing,

prolonging this binge.

I am the goddess bleeding narcotics,

a warm blanket of amnesia,

craving one last fix,

to push the plunger of pain

deep into my heart's vein.

Stabbing gently,

pricking ever so lightly

along the bends of my soul's elbow.

Scarring and clawing away my innocence,

while the demon hiding inside begins to grow.

(Take it away, take it away....I will obey......numb the pain)

My ink spills the blood of desperation

onto my canvas

in a poetic twist of beautiful ignorance.

The lines of my mind

begin to flow

with a new dedication.

As the pen fills with my blood of reason ,

my veins

bleed black ,ink marked shame.

Tracing the tracks in between the eyes,

recognizing the signs.

This is my confession ,

my pages of aggression

memorizing

melodies

of melancholy.

I am the goddess

overcoming the needle with narcotics.

Plagiarizing my own mind

with lines

of my own twisted lyrics.

Defy the cries ,

put down the demons gleaming ties.

Defeating

the syringes final binge .

Take it away,

Take it away...

This is more of a play on words it isnt that im addicted to narcotics i am using it as a metaphor for my addiction to words to pen and paper. It is life and runs through my blood like ink through a pen.

This is a really good poem, Zayleen. Being able to get your thoughts and emotions down on paper can put your heart in a much better place. I can relate to this one. It's a beautiful release.

....well I am so addicted to the way you write and I knew I was on for a wild ride - lol - well I saw your profile photo with the amazing hair color and that look of defiant attitude - you certainly know how to make words come alive and tell your story in your own bold and beautiful style - a creative anomaly you are and someone who dares to go in her own direction and I will certainly follow you down any path you choose - you are different, unique and essential to the epi-man.

Wow thank you so much for the compliments, they brought a smile to my face. I do try to let my emotions flow through my hand into my pen and on to paper. Im glad you found the anomaly within this very special poem. I listen to a wide variety of music. From punk to country and everything in between . Mainly i enjoy rock, metal, rockabilly, and punk music . But good music is good music and i find no need in placing them in genres.
