just to stop the pain

shadows dancing on the window sill

too many nights howling at the moon

too many times of screaming into the pillow

seven circles around the oak

how could it come to this

outrage and indignation

vice grips tighten at different rates

along the length of bones

shaking

crying

legs dancing

shallow breath

whispering prayers to end it

just end it

prove me wrong!

show me how

you exist in this madness

stopping only to vomit

it’s the sickness of wellness

the sickness of ages

how did you become a junkie?

the more important question

what moral demon caused this

what sin

leads to scratching and writhing

nodding and burning the bed

how did you escape

the downtown shuffle
