A crack that was once sealed

Tears open in my heart

The unnamed creatures pour out

Winged, finned

Thousand legged

Thousand eyes

Countless monsters

Wreak havoc in my body

They pull at my heart strings

They cement my thoughts

They dry my skin

Scratching behind my eyes

With their claws

Their laughter

Denies me any focus

I once had

I let their destructive rage


Until they tire

And go home

I re-seal the crack

To begin repairs on my body


Every day is the same, so are dreams

He sits and waits

For a message, a text

A notification


To stop him from thinking about the

dull ache in his ass

From sitting in this chair

All day long


No door bells being rung

Nor the phone ringing

No fly, buzzing,  to fill in the emptiness


People don’t walk past my house much anymore

I’ll leave my curtains open this time

So if they do

They can see me


I watch documentaries on life

To make me feel I’m living it


I read quotes about hard times

To feel validated

Chewing on popcorn

Sipping strawberry milkshake


I come into a pair of pants


I stay up till 6am

Watching static and listening to distortion


My dreams come

She taunts me

Makes me feel ashamed

They laugh together

He sprays deodrant in my eye

I’m pushed, I fractured my wrist

Following me home

Throwing rocks

And words

Till I scream

No one sees it

They lock me inside

I have a knife in my bag


I wake up

Then repeat

The difference between dreams and reality

Are hard to tell these days
