Poems of the Lonely

Tag Archives: too late


the timing is wrong

this desire and fascination

driven by an unknown force

a perfect drug

a mixture created in a bathroom sink

collected in an iodine dropper

muscles clench

stomach rejects

let it out

get it out

falling to the floor

hands and knees meet broken glass

absorbs it into them

the body

keeps sucking it up

sucking it in

devouring this poison

loves it

licks it

can’t kick this

can’t pull out now

too late to go back

just give in

body to floor

broken bottles feel stomach



creeping over and crawling in

a million pests burrowing

don’t fight it

lay still

and just absorb
