Nervosa - Poem by Cori Arbuss

Cut this picture up
Of me and you
You're leaving me breathless
Convulsious and nauseous
And down on my knees
To bring us both the comfort
Warmth. A silent exchange
Between the lovers we never were

Now I'm bent over my only release
Preparing to purge
Gripping the edge, the only thing
Keeping me steady and unmoving
Knocked aside by the magma within
Released by an incredible power
The fevor in its escape is astounding
And I'm pure once more
For just one second
And as the toilet flushes
I know everything will be better

    sometimes
    that's what a souil
    must do
    to gather purity and freedom
    a fine poem
