Helpless - prose

by-geisha.grrrl-©

I feel it, writhing in
side me, bubbling over my
inner walls and prick
ing my heart in order to
find even a small hole
with which to escape

my emotions take me
to places I wish I never
had to go, I wish I
never had to remember
never had to acknowledge

and I feel helpless.

The restraint I force
upon myself chafes and cuts
my wrists and mind
and I find now more than
ever

I feel helpless.

Oh yes, the sun is
shining
and the mormon choir
singing
some song about Jesus
and how he'll save my soul.

But I feel helpless.

Oh yes, I woke this morning
breathing on my own
and I turned my lights on
and made a few calls on my phone
but still, all in all

I feel helpless.

And it bubbles over like
some evil, evil cauldron
and the wisps of smoke and
sinner's ashes
blind me while walking
heaven's road.

There is no end and
no beginning, there
is no closure and
no fixing,
the end is

I feel helpless.
