I hung myself
From your heartstrings
And swayed with
Every breath you
Took over another
Body

I envy the ones who can shut their eyes and see nothing. I've been so blinded by feeling just that, that when I lay down to sleep, my head is brightened by the violent opposite. Enraptured by the pillowcases like pool balls being shot out of 22's, scattering my thoughts like a puzzle with a missing piece, the key to 8 hours of nothing. I've only yearned for emptiness when it consists of mindful ignorance for just ephemeral. Kevlar bed sheets, fired from their job, but still bearing weight, pushing me into a blanket of quick sand that never ends; the suffocation just gets worse. The anxiety folding over me like dirty laundry being put back in the drawer. Tossing and turning and this bed frame ...

In high school and a few years after, I partied like it was ’99. With a few friends and a lot of bad decisions. I found out how easy it was to provoke anger when the recipe called for a lot more than just a cup of whiskey. When I discovered what it was like to drink alone, I grabbed on to the opportunity like pulling nails out of a coffin, whether mine or someone else’s. I glistened under scintillating hues watching horny bar stars get shut down like 2:30 am. I would laugh at the guys who would shit at the bar, I would watch fights outside like I had bets on them, until it was me. The entire experience was short lived and short loved. The hangover was never worth it, watching my bank account ...

O' this blue light
of sky lamps,
it dyes her hair white,
as she sits in impatience
while I smoke my cigarette
to the butt

this ashen sky!
blowing whistles
at finish lines,
cancerous throat
and lung

she makes me
forget about disease.
