The Crave

I have a feeling deep within,
it will not go away,
unlike you, it stays,
feeding off my rotting portions of heart,
grasping me,
living on my pain.
To close my eyes, a deathwish.
A summons of fear
within…
a thousand spiders crawling under my skin.
I shiver at your touch
though I need it oh so much,
to deny you of myself seems so insane.
I can’t keep letting you take over my brain,
but every time I’m craving it’s the same

    Mel, you clearly have a talent that’s been there all along. You really conjure up some intense imagery and emotion with your writing.

    Living on my pain…mmm..ouch.

    I love going back and reading older works and seeing how far we’ve come, but how we’re also the same person we always were somehow. I find it quite cathartic.

    far out – i don’t even know how to comment on your work anymore – can I just leave a blank spot, because whatever I say will be so lame…
