Black Magic

Trauma

I sit as venom assaults my ears.

All I can do is reign back the tears.

I have lived with Black Magic for 31 years.

My mouth is dry,

I can’t help but wonder why.

I taste acidity, bile rising in my throat.

My mind is so boggled by history rewrote.

I see eyes rolling.

It’s almost as draining as dead scrolling.

My health is no more than a joke.

It makes me wish that I would choke.

I can smell the salt sea air.

The booze seems to make a good pair.

I have always been on trial.

The world looks at me with denial.

The emotional pain is too much.

But really am I asking too much?

Scratches down my arm to manifest the pain.

I need the pain to be physical and plain.

In reality it’s hard to explain.
