failure

and this is how it makes me feel:

  • like a ritual unthinking
  • an undrinkable cup
  • bitter
  • hollow
  • part of someone else’s confusing dream
  • hands withdrawn
  • restrained
  • a criminal
  • alone
  • invisible to time
  • ebbing not flowing
  • seasick
  • a fist shrinking in slow motion
  • a shadeless bulb
  • naked on a leafless tree
  • shattered in a puddle
  • draining
  • unspectacular
  • drip-dropping
  • tick-tocking until no tomorrow
  • anxious
  • heartless
  • a shard of ice
  • watching a kettle not boil
  • watching your wobbly mirror dance
  • on a wall by a fast river
  • pulse racing
  • faster faster faster
  • just sick
  • syringed
  • a little prick
  • painkiller
  • unpalatable
  • dirty honey
  • spread thin
  • screen
  • broken on a table
  • asleep
  • now is always unblinking.
