you want to flee to rural portugal

April 10, 2021

nauseous ocean inside you 
churning, turning, aching but
oh so gently, makes you wish to
set up house in a mountain hut

run like a river to a place
where this ocean cannot reach
deck your limbs in mourning lace
and scrub your mind with bleach

this body makes you wish to flee
this life makes you scream
drown yourself in weak warm tea
slip oh so gently to a dream

but running never did save the world;
so you stand up from the floor, uncurled

    I love this, the rhymes are so well done and the turn was amazing. "drown yourself in weak warm tea/slip oh so gently to a dream" was just, wow.

    Oh this is beautiful. I love the message of resilience. To 'stand up from the floor, uncurled' is sometimes such a hard thing to do.
