the burn
from these hits
of jose cuervo
singes my tongue and
lights a fierce flame
from my throat to my gut

the lush scorching
rakes through
layers of aches
as it travels downward
into my many now-barren places

this delicious fire
feels so much sweeter
than the emptiness
that has rooted itself
within the ghostly remains
of my bruised chest

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.

    i understand this one, all too well….it’s a welcome distraction, and not a problem really, unless eventually you can’t feel anything without it…good to see you again, girl :)

    This writing tingles the senses… I’m not a drinker though; had to google jose cuervo to fully understand, but after I did it has been all the more stimulating to read these words.
