Ink Runneth Over

The words trickle
No filter to guide them
Rambling thick and fast
A vernacular of emotion
Weaves through each line
For whatever the reason
Compelled to reach
Some type of conclusion
Write to make sense
Of a blank expression
Or to seek answers
To unasked questions
Write to record
Undiluted pain
A notion of sane
Unfettered disdain
Write to lay witness
To life’s injustice
Gross misconduct
Entrenched contempt
Write to engage
Pure connections
In tender reflections
With loving intentions
Write to evoke
Erotic pleasures
Passionate adventures
Loving endeavours
Write the words
You cannot say
In any way
On a given day
Proverbial freedom
Lies in wait
With words spilled
On every page
Which awakens a
Physical metamorphis
An introspective focus
A necessary process
In trying to decipher
The physical symptoms
That have me imprisoned
Like vile poison
That clots the blood
Of wounded veins
Or tightens the chest
Leaves me gasping for breath
From silent suppression
Or childhood regression
To constant depression
A lifetime’s oppression
I need a concession
To all that I’ve mentioned
So if I haven’t reached
The measure of closure
Or state of composure
In this type of exposure
The ink will runneth over
