Desperation #LittlePoetry #23

Look at
all these words
she spits on paper

All this screaming,
all this incurable desperation

She doesn’t want to,
but she sees no other way to
release herself
from her hunger,
her pain & ponder

To extricate herself from
the hopelessness & emptiness
that keeps her hostage

She stays haunted
by the rose-coloured past
& terrified by
the tenuous future
