Candlewitch

Circle Game

Circle Game

 

with all the cunning attraction

of freshly fallen snow

accumulation in a barren field

how delicious and tempting

to caress the virgin surface

forging a personal trail of tracks…

she found an addiction

for the sharp quick touch

of puncture kisses

on a bed of soft smooth skin…

with all the cunning attraction

of freshly fallen snow

accumulation in a barren field

how delicious and tempting

to caress the virgin surface

forging a personal trail of tracks

On and on it goes...

    such an upsetting topic but so wonderfully written. Definitely brought me back to times in my past, thank you so much for this write.

      dear AmandaJade,

      this is one of my older poems...I remember being stuck in the cycle, too. I thought this might help others know that they are not alone in the struggle. thank you so much for your response.

      Gives me the shivers, having heard a few of these experiences. Not that I'm a professional counsellor or anything like that.
      I reckon something in the mind starts off this cycle.
      On a lighter note of black humour: 'Oohhh, did you know - suicide and self-harm are very bad for your health'!
      And 'Who is Miss Sue E. Side? I shouldn't like to meet her'!
