Atrabilious Heart

I don’t live with any dark

turbulent thoughts anymore.

Living through it once was bad

enough but then I bled on

people who really love me.

My trauma ruined me and

them. Now healed I’m no longer

an atrabilious heart

and life’s peacefully beating

to a happier rhythm.

The First Glass

Once I was a social drunk.

Words sloshed out of my mouth with

ease and my lush confidence

was the whole adventurous

bottle and never the first

glass. Now I don’t give a fuck

what people think. I never

drink. I’m happy to be me.
