A Fix

Come to me bruised and broken

Bring me all your woe

I’ll feed off the blackness

Deep within the soul.

Set the fractured bones

Lance the festering sore

Red droplets, the elixir

Stainless steel, the giving whore.

When healing warmth sets in

You’ll soon forget my worth

Your blood will send you back me

I’m as ancient as the earth.

So bring me all your memories

let me feed upon a pain

For safe and healthy habits

Are always done in vain.
