My Heavy Boulder

I’m stuck in this…..nothingness.
The devil tucks me in
at night. I sleep with cannibals.

I am an apple core. Pigs food.
Where did my blood come from?
I am just a trick.
I do not exist.

My sweat is black magic.
I am invisible.
I am air particles and
part of the walls.
I am seams in the carpet.

A blue moon today
is sad sand tomorrow.
My body is borrowed,
taken by the Mexican gun
and his man.

I am abandoned.
I have abandoned this sickly,
trapped in infected placenta.
A dark traveler between
thought and matter.

The water is cold here
but I am colder.
Death is coming.
He’s tied around my shoulders.
My only friend.
My heavy boulder.

  3. I had not heard of the term “dark imagery” before now. Thank you. I think it aptly describes a lot of what I write. I am a funny person face to face but cannot pull off humour in print. Maybe because I am more in touch with my darker side so am better able to express it.

    • I’m the same way. I’m usually laughing, humorous, sarcastic..but when I write, I can only write the way I write and It’s usually dark and emotional. Thank you for saying hi and for the comment. It’s a pleasure. ~ MM

  4. This is so great. I especially loved:

    I am seams in the carpet.

    A blue moon today
    is sad sand tomorrow.
    My body is borrowed,
    taken by the Mexican gun
    and his man.

    Favorite line: “I am seams in the carpet.”

    Powerful stuff!
