Curse!

There is a curse around me

Prison bars

Straight jacket

Enclosing wild bird of longing

Fluttering inside my chest

You held me down

Under a weight of water

As all my longing dissolved

Into the ether of fluid

Draining away

Just as it was after broken rib

Pierced the pleura

Flooding me with liquid

I cannot breathe

What the fuck

Don’t you see I am drowning here

Struggling to surface

Ancestral pain is on my chest

And all I do is cry

I am sick to death of this

Weight of pain holding me down

Full fathom five under the heaviness of water

Ancestral unconscious

Father crying for the son

He will never see again

You are lost to me now

I am gone

I am going under

Gone gone gone

Long long gone
