A Calm Sensation


I breath in.
The bitter taste rolls across my tongue,
The end of the cigarette glows.
And when I breath out,
My body sinks, my muscles let go-
A calm sensation caresses my body and soul.

I swallow hard.
The jagged pill goes down my throat,
The little pill starts to melt in my stomach...
I let time pass.
My mind becomes cloudy, my body becomes at ease;
A calm sensation caresses my body and soul.

I chug fast.
The toxic taste of alcohol slips into my stomach,
Coating my stomach and filling me up.
I throw up;
My body becomes sick, my mind becomes slow,
A calm sensation caresses my body and soul.

I dig deep.
I feel the sting of my flesh ripping,
The razor blade tearing at my skin-
I watch it bleed.
My limbs become relaxed, weak even, and numb;
A calm sensation caresses my body and soul.
