The Therapist Will See You Now #2

by

Noise

When I’m tryin’ to find a voice
‘Cause the choices I made
Left deranged remnants
Lying in my head

In my bed
Gotta get some sleep
But her weeping claws
And the weeping sores
Of a cut made

Not afraid of the end
‘Cause the thought that it ends is a light
Bright.
Shouldn’t wish it, right?

Well that’s just shite
‘Cause every night I watch
As she spirals down
And I drown in the sound of her pain

Again.

Coz there's little of virtue in her veins,
So don’t blame me for what I

Am unable

To do.

    Awesome, Shaun. This is so potent, it cuts you as you read it. I love the internal rhymes, too, gives it the impression of a jagged rhythm while still maintaining its own rhythmic flow. Nice one sir :) It's a massive situation, and brilliantly executed.

    Thank you, Drew. This is actually an older piece of writing that leant itself, with only minor alteration, to becoming a drabble, and I am using it, not to open old wounds but to continue with a healing process that has started to happen just in time, I feel.
    Thanks again.

    Thanks you, Christopher. I've never been able to write another beat poem such as this. It came instantly as I was watching a BBC Arts showing of Kate Tempest in her home town. Strongly recommend her. She's got power.
