Morphine mice 

by Ava DeFranco

Skitter scatter
My brain matter 
Morphine mice in decided clatter 
In a life of stimulation 
I somehow find to isolation 
Friction feeds at my addiction
Heartbeat blood-red hues 
The deeper yearning I had never lose
Dippin Dots and booze
Caressed me memory black to  blue 
On me leave a bruise 
That solidifies a love for you
And tangles in my thoughts at night 
Silent Secrets hide from light
And your junk bag boyfriend I'd like to fight 
Or rather
I’d deck someone at my own height 
A brighter day with each small site
waves back at me you're all Delights
fall deep to every word you say
a morphine mind so led astray
