“About Curing My Venom:
A poetic journey that leads through the five stages of grief.
Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.
Curing My Venom is about mental illness, failures, and self-healing.
Tiny speck of hope
peeking through my window
tell me what you seek
there is nothing for you here
maybe you should leave
I am just an ounce of emptiness
fading behind this dark
stay away from me
before you lose your spark.
O’ my foolish child
how do you not know?
You are the light I come for
and yet you have no clue?
this spark you see in me
is a reflection of you.
Because, darling, you are hope
