What ails you?

My back hurts     the guilt has spread its bony wings


Dissolved throats     regurgitating acid

A cup spills that orange substance

And the stomach lining touched with rust

It is only an irritation

A flesh wound                      Arteries make a body

“I don’t feel a heart anymore”

I lost it in that blue confession room

Along with the goddess that lived there

It was I who tortured it…

What ails you?

I haven’t hated myself enough

But suicide is not good enough

Too cynical for apologies,

But alienated enough to sink underground


Lynchian Stillness

There aren’t moments I hope

Only events I regret

I want to fight this discomfort

But I have become too use to this


Feeling like this


These are my ailments.
