Bathe in Dry Waters

The water's dried
Now lays spotted on the surrounding tiles
I remoisturize them with my tears, my fears
Silence, my strongest weakness, weakest strength
Solicit among the close of plastic curtains
Sold, yet transparent, a refection of my wilted self
I dwell in my own soundproof dimension
An extension
An escape
This tub overflows the filthy blood I shed unto
    which you swallow
Meloncholy midnights inhabit thy sanctuary
Saturated sadness intwine its walls
The waterfall cascades my empty body
    I feel clean...
      For a while
It is here where I catch a glimse of my unknown self
Here where I hold this pen
Black ink devouring my emotions henceforthe vomiting
    the overbearing root to words
Fire drowning the unseen pipes,
Waiting to exert itself through metallic holes
    sufferingly controlling its current
In solitude I lay upon the solidified cold,
Curtains closed
Unexposed
Concealed from all earthly illusions
    of life
    of love
    of death and
       hate
I see both world's at once
More real is the one within these curtains
I like it

and you, a wounded soul? So much pain and frustration in this piece, ouch! You write well, letting the emotions guide your pen and holding no restraint, I will be looking forward to reading many more pieces of yours.

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..
