follow the tracks
up and down my arms
every vein collapsed
no hope left

an empty life
a dirty spoon
and endless abscesses
infecting my mind

up is down, black is white
what was wrong seems so right

dull needles
digging craters
chase away
the darkness
I secretly love

but the light is too bright
this fight is taking my life
when there's nothing left
what's the sense
this is nonsense

I'm trapped behind the glass
in the reflection
my eyes are black

endless pools
of hopelessness
and lovelessness
and a need to be held at night
to stay by someones side
anyone's side
to hold on tight
and leave this lifeless life behind

~ Brandan Michael.

Sime very powerful imagery going on there. The snapshots truly created thst sens of longing; good change of perspectives, very intimate.

I wrote this to remind me why I have 3yrs sober. Remembering the bad can reestablish the good.
