She found herself.

She found herself in a pile of blood on her bathroom floor,

 with the Moon watching as she bled.


Life running through her pores,

life poring through her mouth,

constant yelling, and fleeting thoughts of salvation as she



In that moment,

she found herself at her lowest.

She became ungodly, unholy, demonic,

a beast.

 Consumed by tragic,

consumed by bad habits,

by pain, by the reality of evil.


“Ever seen through the absence of color?”

She asked the Moon while her eyes glazed over.

She never waited for the Moons response,

Every night she asked the same question,

but every night failed to wait.


She was too consumed by self loathing and grief,

Instead she succumbed to her pain

To her Darkness.

Every night

She drowned.

        Totally worth it! Get the hardcover edition if you can, because it adds the foreword, which by itself is a phenomenal read. I read the whole book a couple of times this year thus far. Prepare for all the feels, just a warning! 🙂

      2. Have you read Audre Lorde’s interview with Adrienne Rich in her book “Sister Outsider” ?
        I’ve made it my late night read tonight, and nothing has touched me/ made me more aware of my writing than that interview. I have an entire post dedicated to it for tomorrow.
