Week 26 – Cry #2


Empty bottles clutter my apartment

Empty pints, fifths, and liters

Hollow noises race through my intestines

Hollow eye sockets stare at the TV

Twitching fingers jab at the remote

Twitching nerves keep me awake

Carving letters into the baseboards

Carving designs in my skin

Lying in pools of sweat

Lying crying dying

Cry cry
