i just want to be pure

i thought i could deal with, perhaps even come to understand my obsessions through some strained eloquence. i thought i could eventually pierce every veil through chance metaphor, but how many flowers can serve as metaphors for that initial mingling of blood and water encased in the barrel of a syringe? the fact is that instead of freeing myself through language, the language itself has become a hostage, and the room where we are held becomes smaller every day.
