Venus Fly Trap


Venus Fly Trap

Tiredness
seeping thru me
Sticky
Cloying
Poisonous sap
thru an old tree

My brain excretes weariness
a sponge soaked with deadly venom
running thru my system
aching in my eyeballs
clumping in my throat
numbing my heart

Weakness is planted deep in my creative womb becoming a venus fly trap
Devouring
inspiration
motivation
living and thriving on death

No idea takes flight
No Aphrodite springs from the foam
Consciousness closes down as the hours of the day get ingested by the trap
