Pick Your Poison

i cannot begin to comprehend the lines and shades that comprise my desire,
and there is no way to discern the righteous path ahead without some diva's guide.
i've been waiting impatiently for release from an unknown smile, 
primed to jump towards the sky without more than the gentle touch of encouragement. 
pool me back into the river, great shaman of the sunrise, 
that i might bathe away my lack of conviction through these prayers.

enough poison already
