Poem of the Day


Swelling in one’s pit
Growing like a weed
An envious exhale too intense to
inhale again and breathe
Rush of blood and thoughts
Internal whirlwind uncontrolled
Sinking, falling, erupting from each
dark and tender fold
Here and where? I am
Hesitant to push, to try
Testing forbidden waters which I’ve
always sought to find
Dizzy with delight
Fun, nervous, attention whore
Shaking with adrenalin and still
Not enough, give me more
Drown it with a drink
Still the heart before it bursts
Tame the inner beast always
hungry for her firsts.
