Treasure Island

Joyce Rugg

(2/21/1996- / olean new york)

Bleed Black


It's like a drug, an all-consuming obsession
Not injected but expelled
Numbing, pushing away the depression
As i explode, my demons are felled

It pours from me, not blood but ink
Leaving me alone with the eyes in the mirror,
Draining me of all the dark thoughts I can't help but think
Everything melts away; anger, pain, fear

All of it gone; I'm truly free
For the briefest instant, all is light
The shadows disappear, leaving only me
The pain's still there, but it's lost it's bite

I am untouchable, immune
All of their caustic words now just more sound
But this joy fades all too soon,
And I'm back where I started, somewhere below the ground
