Eating Ink


The words spill from my mouth
They bubble up from deep within me
I try to close my lips
To keep the words from getting free

I am not quick enough
The words splatter all around
Ink dribbles from my mouth
In its thickness I begin to drown

Ink floods my lungs
It fills my veins
It's all I can do just to stand
As from within the ink drains

I cannot swallow the ink down
It's as if I'm a geyser on the verge of corrosion
The pressure building up inside
Until the ink overflows in an explosion

Ink gushes from every orfice
There is no holding it back
Words scatter across every surface
Wet, thick, sticky, and black

My lips bleed ink
My body is clothed in it
The room is flooded with my words
To their power I submit

I'm a little bit stronger
With every word written on the walls
All that I am is set free
Revealing my true self as I fall....

Falling... Falling... Falling....
I'm finally spent
The ink is out of my system
I'm allowed the freedom to live in the present

My soul begins to mend
I step back from the dark brink
The words heal me
As I eat the ink
