Break My Nighttime Fast



I feel your coldness
Creeping
Through my ears
Snaking
Down my spine
Playing havoc
In my heart
Trampolining
Between the left
And right ventricles

I know
It's all me
My fear of loss
My fear of things
I can't name
Or put to paper
Hemorrhaging
Insecurities
Dripping slowly
Towards my bowels

The only light I see
Is when the sun rises
To a new dawn
The dark
Has dispelled
Its sinister hold
And I break
My nighttime fast
With a sip of
Hot steamy
Daily affirmations
I can then flush
The negative
Excrement
That has no place
No business
Inside my thoughts
My body
My words
