I wrote this poem while listening to the song Volcano by Damien Rice... thus the title lol.

Volcano - Damien Rice

June 21, 2020


i shut my eyes
and force daggers down my throat
the taste rolls different down my tongue 
could it be my memories?
bitter but yet, so sickly sweet

music can be a comfort 
mixes of random chords and emotion
but nostalgia burns against cracking lips 
why do i keep feeling this way?
love is a tonic, half poison, half healing

the doctors say
there’s a cherry pit inside of me
and that i’m not myself when i wear this skin
but why break through my rib cage with no reason?
i know my body, he just doesn’t know me 

i shut my eyes
and force daggers down my throat
the taste bleeds, broken down my tongue 
and i know this time 
that it’s you i’m thinking of
