I
Sleep walking every day now.

II

You can’t get off on a ride like this.
Fine by me.

III

Found the dog of my dreams
in the gutter next to an epiphany —
This sensation is all I’ll ever need.

IV

I like it so goddamn much
and that’s perhaps
why I should stop.

V

I want to die feeling like this.

VI

I’ve got charcoal lungs
and everything I breathe
tastes china white.

VII

I am surviving off borrowed time and loose plans.

VIII

Heroin makes me want to pop
off my head like a wine cork goes.

IX

This is better than being in love. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
