He bottles up his emotions
Hoping to mask his pain with the alcohol in his veins.
To zoom past the fears and onto the healing
But the heat of those moments will never change his past.
He looks back at those times with a strange glance
His lethargic behavior was self deprecating and dismal
In hopes of healing he turned to his lover.
One thought on “9. Bottled Pains”
I really like the line “To zoom past the fears and onto the healing”. It expresses for me the theme of the ways humans avoid dealing with past emotion/ trauma.
