    nails

    every day, is a new
    nail in my mouth
    screw my teeth
    every time i think i
    found the bite, i end up
    back in the white.
    lacking color in
    my picture, i turn to friends
    for support, all they do is
    lend answers i did not
    ask for.
    my response is always sure
    even with the blood dripping
    down, my canvas becoming
    loud in anger.
    it calms and softens after tears
    like a load in the wash
    i fold and feel it on my back
    still cold and wet.
    if this is what life has set for me
    then i should swallow
    all the nails.
