Drunk - A Poem by Me


You got drunk on delicious secrets,
Yes, you did,
You got high off the most hidden beats of the heart,
You found your drug in the dizzy exhilaration of pulling them out of others
One
By
One.
Lifting the darkly delicious toxin to your lips
The rush of the blood and the new calculations flooding your face
and the soft shrieks and the moans of others as they felt their very heartstrings 
ripped from them and the puzzles no one can solve but you can and the deep delectable 
ecstasy of it all of holding someone else’s secrets their very tissue their very breath dripping slimy in your hands of having 
complete power over their souls and being awash in this knowledge these secrets these delightfully delicious secrets on which you got drunk -

Only to find it all
Come cra
Shing
Down.

P.S. YEAH I KNOW IT GOES OFF THE POST BORDERS BUT IF I'D MADE THE FONT ANY SMALLER IT WOULD HAVE BEEN UNREADABLE SO DEAL OKAY.

  1. I really liked this poem. You have so much talent. We are doing a poetry unit in my school right now, and I wish they would expose us to poems like this one by young authors instead of just old English literature.

  2. I almost had a really insightful comment before reading the poem a couple more times and realised I was just repeating what the poem had already said but in normal person words.
    I expect the secrets are delicious because they have the potential to ruin lives and make you powerful and all that jazz but you already know that cause you wrote the freaking poem and this is why I don't comment on the "big" or "important" things cause idk what to say I just really like what you've wrote and I've used this excuse far too may times you're probably tired of hearing it i'll just scurry back into my cave of solitude thank you and good afternoon.

    1. I think they are, too.
      No! I like hearing what you have to say, even if you just restate the point of the post in layman's tongue. I love hearing your thoughts on stuff, you're just always so great to have a conversation with.
