Solitary silent screams
awake the Ambien sleepless souls
from darkest deapths of midnight dreams
to face the day as it unfolds

Some water in a dixie cup
a plastic case containing pills
a shaking body sips it up
to wash away a life of ills

Cups of Coffee and hits of smack
a syringe and pints of liquor
keep Somatic lives on track
as sickness becomes sicker
