I never meant to feel like this. Life is full of promises like broken teeth. I never meant to fall for you. Still your imprints are deep inside me. No one can tell me to be careful. I am sober all day long. Still I cannot sleep. There is nothing I could do, but stare at the stars. They are dying and their light is dead. I never meant to feel this way. I hear the sound of trucks at night driving to far off destinations and I want to go too. You make it hard to live. There is a scar in my heart. I feel blue. There is no chemistry here. My broken teeth are bleeding. The world is spinning around like letters in a vacuum. I don’t want to sweat things. I feel too cold to stay around. Author bio: Luis works in the mental health field.
