My mind is noisy. Echoes from far away reverberate in my head.
The stimulation of flashing lights and flashy egos gives me an energy hangover.
Unseen waves of wanting swirl and envelope whole bodies.
Just name your poison.
My body aches from sobbing.
I’ve drained more of the poison from inside me.
By speaking the unspeakable I experienced a release like none I’d felt before.
Hidden behind a wall of hurt, fear, tears and tantrums was stillness.
I felt arms holding me.
I cried and cried, letting the tears wash me clean.
Then the demon was standing before me, weakened from the exorcism.
In its place, a presence seeps into my every cell.
Love. Wisdom. Peace. Intelligence. Beauty. Creativity. Joy
How do you get rid of the poison?
I see the connection to the serpent
because it feels like venom my veins.
At first the bite doesn’t seem dangerous
but then the poison seeps in
and you forget who you are.
Do you suck it out?
Pour whiskey on it?
Sweat it out in a sauna?
I need to know.
