There’s catharsis in the words I feel

I prick myself with verbs to know this life’s real

For me, writing is therapeutic… it’s the new form of bloodletting

These emotions ooze out of my soul… almost as if my loves sweating

Almost as if my pain is laughing…

Almost as if my hate is crying…

My tears attempt to write these prose but the process is often trying

So as I perform this emotional venesection and spill my piece

The room grows dark and I slowly find my release

I’ll dance in and out of your consciousness at a rhythmic pace

As the substance of the man that I am is transposed to your time & your place…
