    My belly is the melting pot
    for every pent up emotion
    I’ve ever felt.
    Churning and burning
    the vileness rises
    up my esophagus
    and chokes me with its
    hands
    like its alive
    and has a mind of its own.
    I’m gagging off the
    stress
    disappointments
    sins
    ready to metaphorically
    throw up
    my hands
    and surrender
    to what’s cookin in me.
    Feeling queasy
    like I just drank
    some pot liquor
    with my corn bread

    Fed up with feeling…

    And its **** near
    sickening
    The thickness
    of the drama
    is cuttable
    Like I could slice
    a piece of my insides
    like grandma’s red velvet cake.

    The pot had some good stuff too
    but it got stuck at the bottom
    cause the other
    ingredients
    didn’t let it move around
    and it got brown
    black
    rusty
    and eventually died…

    And all I had was
    68 day old
    leftovers.

    Anybody hungry?
