I could not believe the lifeless pale of your skin
or that insufferably numb look in your eyes
You’ve always been good at pretending to look better
and sound better than the way you felt
but this time I know
hell, the whole world knows
you feel rotten
and flushed out.
you’re filling your stomach now
with little pillbox remedies
just trying to stay half full
and what a shame.
You look so sick.
