A complex disease (part 2)

a mood board containing pictures about a complex disease
This slow(ing) death is priceless

The diamond skin has covered
the specious shame , the bloodshed
an inconvenient truth to be told
      
but the tongues are cut

and the high heels are rolling
deep in the hole
they sink, and they drip
and they lay as they lie
they are shifting their shape

*

A body sustained by pills

They manage to get hold of

Out loud it screams

*

As we collide we do not blossom
Black infants we spray instead
As we bleed this sludge
We do not pray
 
and death 
                  I do not understand
but overwhelmed 
                               I observe
this vicious unknown entity of mine

It lives 
            without breathing 

She lives in certainty of my failure

  1. The suffocating, morbid, raging undercurrent of feelings and emotions, excellent painting of the mind. May the piercing light bring relieve!
