I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
Lay here on this couch a while
Let your stress go, relax and smile
Now tell me what you remembered when you were 12 years old
Tell me again how you spent countless winters out in the cold
Were you in pain? Did you suffer?
How long have you been addicted? Were you molested in any way?
Tell me all what you have to say.
Oh yes, there you go, relax under my trance
Take these two pills and you will feel like you are doing a cloud dance
Oh Yes! Oh Yes! I feel the pain your feel
I feel the guilt you bear
I envy, for you it was real
For me I wish I could be there
Tell me about the time you killed the pig
And your father gave you a shovel for a grave to dig
Tell me about the time when you were cornered and beaten
And locked away in the basement without food or water and your toe rats had eaten
Go ahead, go deeper into your sleep
Remember your homelessness and your devastation on the streets
I need to feel it, I simply need to feel more
Go ahead, don't stop, tell me more
Is that it? Is that all you can recall
Swallow these other two pills, it may help you remember all
Come now, give me that pain you feel, give me that bad touch you got
I need to feel, I need to feed, give me non stop
There you go, come again next week, we are finally reaching somewhere
I am now apart of you, as I feel what you share.
