i've been drinking more water latelyMature

i’ve been drinking more water lately.
one could argue i’m just trying to flush you out,
to wipe the last vestigial traces of your poison
from my body, to let it out into the light.
all this time you’ve been embedding yourself in me.
hollowing out my bones to make them into homes
for the little disappointments we breed in each other.

The End
