OK, this is a bit scary, but it made me feel better.

* Distance *

Slowly at first,
then faster,
faster.
In my dream state I vision her,
cutting into her old,
sagging skin.
Suddenly,
it has lost it's glamour.
Like a gun in my mouth,
sucking ---
I could think of worse.
I close my eyes,
as the nausea captures me.
It has come too far      -      It is over.
There is a Cancer in this house
and it is eating me ;
eat,
suck,
spit,
****.
There is a Cancer in this house
and I am too young to fight it.
Too far gone      -      Half dead half holding on.
Proud,
ugly.
Beautiful and so utterly ashamed.
In my hand it is everything it should be.
Exact, cold and hungry,
it makes sense to me.
Cull the disease,
is it you ?
Wouldn't you try to remove the Cancer ?

This poem is hard to understanding. Aren't they all? But I can feel th emotions you have tried so very hard to show.

It's actually about self-abuse, and a dream I had about my mum cutting herself. About how the media makes it look fashionable almost, when the victims are the youthful and beautiful but the thought  of middle-aged people doing it is grotesque.
Stupid really. Just words.
