Have you ever tasted of a true-to-life tragicomedy so
vacant and bleak, that you are left with a vision as
entangled as your intestines after being bloodied by
your ulcer's streak?
Have you truly ever felt so helpless that all the broken
branches, falling leaves and raindrops make you remember
your invalid limbs and senses, that you pray for the most
wretched tornado to come your way and rip you barbarically
for the world to see?
Have you stood like a drowned cadaver in front of your own
bathroom mirror, cursing the day the universe decided your
conception, and all the hideousness of being that you are
meant to participate in and partake of?
Have you ever numbly stared at at your pale wrists for
hours on end, wondering which direction to try for next
and what word to scar deep inside your mind's eye?
Have you ever bore witness to a beloved's self-destruction as
they regurgitate and meditate while on medication why broken
babes are still breathing and increasing in population, even if
the rule of nature dictates otherwise?
