Standing on a nerve, calling out for recognition,
simple agonies foist themselves beyond the cut
this multicoloured simplicity calls for ever
the catatonic state of being besides creation.
Confessions under drink, falling softly in confidence
a quiet disinfectant scours the kitchen,
promoting poison before the way of sundry
excellence in form holding no-one back.
These distant biscuits hog the coveted tin,
stale foodstuffs carve the way for hunger
the silent heater weighs down the electricity
constant showers needed to keep betters sweet.
Twisted for another kiss, asking for making fun
cleaning the living area a case to answer
declaring oneself in the communal corridor
fearing the attack before it ever happens.
Satisfied with stout, a singular homecoming,
saving for multiple rounds ever circling
useless words calling on sole redemption
trying very hard to be even friendly again.
Laughed at repeatedly, fruits of dire confession
poisonous through spite, hurting where intended
cleaned through effort, no call for fag breaks
scarred in a sustained fashion, kept quiet forever.
