Flood

by eloisehendy

My heart hurts

With this devouring happiness

That gnaws my insides

Chews my organs

And threatens to throttle

Extending snaky sinews

Into the crimson ribbon

Tracing my veins.

I pulsate with this painful pressure

This painful pleasure

Sensation that pushes on my ribs

And grips me like a wild creature

Broken its enclosure,

Desperate for release

No relief

From the pounding

On my body’s walls

They crumble under these blows

The locks are burst

All overflows

I am flooded from within

And all I can do

Is cling to you to save from drowning.
