REPRIEVE

sleeping-690429_960_720

Needles
Dig deep
Searching
For comfort
The sweet spot
That will deliver
Complete reprieve
Until they don’t
And the search
Continues…
For the next stick
The sigh of relief
That drowns regret
Quiets
The voices
Screeching
Beneath the skin
Quenches
The thirst
Crackling
Beneath the surface
And pulls you under
Into the sea of death
Over and over again

 

*Dedicated to all the people I have lost to addiction.
