Confidant

lies in wait
for times, when body breaks
flinging neurons to
feed bundled, nerve endings
till, breaking surface, erupting
cramp, pang, twinge, ache
or throbbing knife
a barbarous message
a first, muddled step
a nudge, toward healing

  1. I really like this poem. One of my favourite singers is Alanis Morissette, and this poem reminded a bit of her lyrics. Not any song in particular, but just the style of her lyrics. So, from my perspective, that’s good for you because I consider her so good, and your poem was on par with a lot of what she’s written. If you happen to hate Alanis Morissette, your poem was nothing like her lyrics. 🙂
