Painted, by Georgina Stewart

Carved cheeks, perfect lips

Bottles of perfume and pills.

Scrap the very being and lick

The last ounces of my awareness.

Flashed adverts, sparked yearnings

New beginnings, deeper needing.

Stop. This is sucking me dry.

Only enough to help me try

The taste of freedom, skillfully shut.

A simple compromise for needing.
