The Fanatics Falling from Grace!

image_zpsb606e780Admittedly there is no real silence
I sit alone
Shades drawn
Tears falling
Shutting out the world

Sometimes I actually think I see him
But mostly I just feel him
And always always hear him

sad woman backWorthless
No good to anyone
I sat in my hallway
Hand on the cupboard door

sad fall leavesAn invisible push
I reached in
I pulled the bottles of pills out
Some fat
Some thin
Same color
Same stigma
A plethora of psychotropic meds
Some years old
Some days old
A count of over 300

Some white
Some capsules
Failure as individual remedies
But perhaps as a cocktail
One powerful dose
My eyes would close
To true silence
