morbid curiosity

the slice
the gash
the blood
the flow
the flush
the rush
the endorphins
spreading 
throughout 
the body 
(sensual shock
to the brain)
the alcohol
the bandage
the cover-up 
the revealing
the lie
the emotional
scar
the return
the hack
the gouge
the dig
the deeper wound
the blood pouring
the blood shooting
out like a fire hydrant
the flush like the
falls of Niagara
the larger rush than
before
the explosion of
endorphins
the orgasm of the
mind
the bliss
the alcohol
the bandage
the cover-up
the need for
more
the absence of
emotional
pain (blacked out
by the physical
each time you slam
the wound against a
table)
the lighting of the
cigarette
the twisting of the
burning flame into the
skin
the searing
the fresh new pain
undeniable & beautiful
losing the virginity 
all over again
the wonder
the echoes of
destruction ripping up
the arm or the leg
(wherever the burn
occured)
the sensual explosion
the annihilation of the
emotions
the blanking of the slate
the smile 
within
the analgesic ointment of
choice
the bandage
the cover-up
the painkiller popped to
curb the leftover burn
the bliss
the fall 
the lay back in the bed
the control over one’s
life
no longer needing anyone
to listen
no longer needing to
feel vulnerable
no longer abiding by
the norm that doesn’t care
anyway.
