The Ghost ship

Lying motionless atop the blanket
A thin film of sweat covers my skin- cold
Beneath my nerves tremble
I force deep breaths, like a bear trap heaving open and shut
I’m so angry

I’m SO angry
My head feels dizzy, my eyes burn
Thick wet tears run down my cheeks- hot
My jaws tighten my teeth like a clamp
And in my throat, a knot like a fish hook
Pulls up my despair
I’m so angry

I could hurt you
I’d slap and kick and punch till you fall
I’ll smack and whip till you break
And my tears will burn your skin like acid
Until you feel
What you have made me feel

I’m so angry
And you come at me and kiss my neck
I give in, like the earth swallows itself leaving empty craters of darkness
Then we have sex, and then it’s over
I’m voiceless

I’m still angry- silenced
I sink into my depths- a ghost ship
You snore heavily beside me
I eat chocolate, thick cream curbs the hunger until i’m FULL, my center is warm
And then I sleep- and dream of
