High

The black place between
no way in and no way out.
Black is how you see everything.
Except when it's not black,
when lights are spinning and your body
feels like it's god.

33 words for , including the same one, thrice.

    1. Trying to freak me out in my own comment section, Björn???
      Yes, and November is kinda like a vampire drinking your blood. I guess. If I thought about vampires drinking my blood. Which I hadn't been.
      So, anyway. Thanks, Björn!

  7. I see depression, and then I see a good stiff drink-and for a while, everything is ok. Or chocolate-that works for me;)

    You've packed a lot in these 33 glorious words, Kymm!
