space and haunts, demons and poison

I would give you everything,
But it was taken from me long ago,
My demons, my phantoms,
They take whatever they can get their hands on,
And I give them whatever they need to keep the hunger at bay.
I want to be your everything
But you could never be mine,
I have too many haunts that keep me up in the night,
They call and I crawl,
Eager to sustain their cravings and quiet the wails that keep me haunted.
I’ll never know how to live without them
They made me,
And destroy me in the same breath,
But that’s the price of love,
Well, my love I suppose,
Space and haunts, demons and poison,
Which will pull you under faster?
Bottoms up, they claw at me eagerly,
Anxious to find out which will destroy me first.

    I admire your ability to share so openly and honestly about your struggles. But I promise the best parts of who you are never truly leave. They may be beaten and bloodied, but they survive. They will find there way into the light again in time. Of this I am confident!

    I can relate to a lot of your poems, more so lately. I don’t know if its eerie, beautiful or beautifully eerie, but your words do have a way of putting themselves! No doubt your poem is beautiful, but I hope the writer behind such beauty isn’t still broken and healing everyday. Also congrats for being selected for the podcast, I can see why. You post poems almost daily, seriously, your ability to write so much is just inspiring.

    You write so well. I am such an amateur writer. I was listening to your podcast and letting myself down on a public forum is so difficult and yet I am trying a little by little every day. Thank you for inspiration you give others to do what they feel best about.
