unable to sleep

unable to sleep
from a night out on the town
drinking and
smearing
glass mirrors.

the hangovers
that continue
to worsen
while you’re awake and
unable to sleep
breeds
a
feeling of committing to never touching the bottle again.

Netflix…Netflix
Google Play
Google Music
nothing is working
to rest my mind.

so,
one more klonopin.

still, can’t stay still.

I roll over to check the phone:
it’s 5:30 p.m.
and i’ve received a text:

“What are you doing?
Want to go out tonight
for drinks and shenanigans?”

Now,
I’m
trying to sober up
by drinking
some more
and
busting
out
the
smeared
glass
mirror.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
