my heart spewed out words I could not spell.
02:45am… nothing made sense.
the air was dry. it hurt my nose, but not as badly as the hurt in my soul.
03:00am… the walls disappeared.
03:01am… my thoughts lost count & time hit an invincible floor.
My clock rolled backwards. My ceiling rose.
I threw up. the vomit tasted like flowers
or iron, I wasn’t sure.
My phone rang, I ignored.
My heart spoke, I listened.
My soul cried. I died a little.
I heard a bird.
I heard a voice.
I heard the walls with my eyes.
“He heals the broken.”
I… said: “I’m not broken.”
they laughed, the same way animals laugh at Man.
I said a prayer made of steel.
left my tears on the floor.
and dragged my body back to bed.
