Meaningless words rattling in my skull.
Even while I try to shut them out, they drill in,
Never leaving me be;
Some screaming, some begging, some accusing.
Trying to shut them out I cover my ears;
Realizing it is to no avail, too late, I tremble
Under the harsh fluorescent lights of the public restroom
As I clutch desperately to the faux marble counter,
Leaning heavily against it for support.
Creeping along, trying to steal my sanity,
Revving your proverbial engines as a grin slashes across your face
And blood drips from clenched teeth.
My pained cries are blocked by the pills I pop,
Simply trying to escape the agony.
