Seeking Relief

Coffee fuels my pen.

Whiskey fuels my knife.

Will there ever be an end to this fucking thing called life?

My pen fuels my heart.

My knife fuels my thirst.

Will the blood from an unnatural art make me forever cursed?

My heart fuels my pain.

My thirst fuels my mind.

Will I ever just open a vein to feel the relief I hope to find?

    1. Thank you. I like the way you described your experience reading what I wrote. It’s nice to hear someones view on what I write. I like how you said I turned painful emotion into something beautiful. I haven’t thought of it in such a term before. I really appreciate your comments.
