MELANCHOLY.

I buy alcohol to feel something, and pills to feel nothing. I drink whiskey straight from the bottle, and as I shatter the bottle against the wall, the broken pieces after the fall feel like my body.

REST IN PIECES

I still remember when mother brought you home. We were coming from school and you were wrapped in some blue thingy. I can’t forget how fragile you were that we feared we might break you if we even touched you. Just like a new baby, only mother was allowed to wash you in fear we […]
