An Ode To Lactose Intolerance

Xochi Romero
Xochi Romero

My stomach fills with bricks,
Just from looking at you.

Still, I long to consume you.

You send shards through my intestines.
When I taste you, my insides burn.

It takes days to cleanse my system of you.

They tell me to stop
But I’m addicted to you.

Life is a cycle of
Withdrawal,
Binging,
Pain,
Regret.

You hurt me
And, yet, I love you so. TC mark
