the meltdown.

picture1

The bright street lights blind my eyes

So I lower my head

And let the ice- river rush through my veins

To freely engulf me.

Heart sporadically leaping down my throat

The insatiable void that uncontrollably screams

And throws a tantrum

Desperate to fill the vacant space

Here within.

Smiles so plastered to my lethargic face

Like a duct tape stuck on a rigid surface

That no matter how hard you pull

It still stays intact.

Breathing in and out rhythmically

Feels brutally unreal

Like blowing air in a ruptured balloon

Futile and disappointing…

And superficial conversations turn to

Muffled noise of nothingness

As I drown in the emptiness

Wavering into the abyss.
