Poetry is my Novocain
my go to drug when I’m feeling pain
always there in different strains
ready to inject and wrap itself into my thinning veins.
slowly pouring out its sedative,
allowing my eyes to roll back and see
as my fingers glide over the imprints it leaves on my skin
swirling luminescent liquid verses
tattooing my body and soul with
words not yet spoken,
but felt entirely by me.
