NaPoWriMo Day 2

The prompt for day two of NaPoWriMo was to write a poem inspired by the #1 song from the day you were born.  I didn't write one inspired by it but I did take the title as a jumping point.  And here's the result:

Livin' on a Prayer

Swimming for answers
found in the light.
A reality fragmented by good feelings
and bad ones.
I scratched at my skin
to try and rid myself of the dark
and keep God in my veins.

I live for salvation offered
in 1 cc syringe.
