It’s still fresh right



It’s still fresh!?!




It is six        God        damn       years     old


It is not fresh

It is rotten


It is maggot ridden

Flea bitten

Fly filled pain


It’s been growing mould beneath the surface of my skin since the day I dropped that foetus into the toilet and just because last night was the first fuckin time that you called it our baby doesn’t mean it’s fresh


It just means that now

it finally hurts the way

it always should have

It's a matter of perspective ent it?
I mean, cosmically, it's still fresh, right?
Theoretically, freshness can be preserved.

Ouch this one is a biter!

Ouch this one is a biter! Rant away I crown the mistress  of rant in line for the throne! Anger is grief recognising the source.

Incredible... The emotion in this is staggering. I adore you.

I don't know how to reply to that...except you know that feeling you get when a writer you truly respect, who always blows you away with their work, says something really kind about your work...its like that but on fire...

Much Love
