Descent

The prompt was to write about something descending—though there is no way to post at the moment because the site seems to have sunk the comment section—my offering is here. It is about addiction and (possible) recovery.

Descent

the way is slippery
at times
and salty
with tears and other
less savory fluids
(snot, blood, shame)
and even through
the sound of my own
h
o
w
l
of anguish
i remain determined
on my
course
blindly
ignore
all
warnings

and when i reach
r o c k b o t t o m
and there is no
further
to go
is when
h e a l i n g
may
begin.
