It's all in my head

Sleepless nights and bitter dawns

Looking for

An understanding, an epiphany

For the feelings I cannot fathom


Pacing back and forth

Looking through the folds of the lobes

Of my mind

Electric impulses, somewhat biological.


Hasty footsteps sound

Towards the bathroom door

Inhale. Exhale

Dragging the blade across my porcelain skin


The calamitous realization

I finally understand

I am empty


The End
