Day 5

How can you kill the part but not the whole
How can a body live without its soul
In the thick abyss of reality
In the darkness of sobriety
Drunk with the numbness that accompanies pain
Dying inside, waiting for you to do the same

My heart, I know it’s there but I can’t feel it beat
I am walking and running with no knowledge of my feet
I am shaking and shivering in reaction to the cold
I am anxious to die, too impatient to grow old
I feel everything and nothing all at once
I see the darkness of the moon, I feel the heat of the sun
There are two of us now when we used to be as one
Unravel, uncoil
I’ve come undone
