How Much I Should Take

By Matty. 

 

Every night I stare out my window,

Drowning in my wake.

Looking at my pill bottle. 

Thinking of how much I should take. 

 

Drip, drip.

The faucet sings her tune.

As wine fills the room. 

The smell, like poison

The dripping like a drum

Until I drink it all up.

And suddenly, I'm numb. 

 

I look back at my pills,

Holding five in my hand. 

I count them one by one,

While my heart tightens like a band.

 

Help, help 

My mind cries out. 

But as I pour more pills,

My mind is full of doubt. 

 

How much I should take,

Depends on a couple of things.

How much do I care, 

And how much my life brings. 

 

Drip, drop

The pills fall down. 

Just like my motivation,

Down upon the ground. 

 

I count to ten, 

That number seems too low,

Maybe it's fine, then? 

Maybe I need to go. 

 

How much I should take, 

Depends on a couple of things,

How much mind is awake, 

And how much my mind wants me gone. 

 

So, every night I stare out my window,

Drowning in my wake,

Looking at my pill bottle,

Thinking of how much I should take.
