Drip

Up goes the regret and the guilt

Through the passage

My sense of smell;

Built up

And the taste potently powdered in sheep’s

Fleece.

Appearing small but mighty,

Fighting the skeletons

I’ve dressed in

Suppression.

Questioning that fine line

Like a chalked silhouette

At a crime scene.

Pure emptiness

Resets itself

And I am tempted

By the euphoria.

Next time,

I’ll erase the line

And pass the time

With more of these rhymes.

The skeletons will dance

On the grave of sobriety

And the high will be

Low again.
