The tears haven’t dried on my pillow overnight.
I must have cried all night in my sleep.

The reminders come back in a full-frontal assault.
The burnt mountains are too high and too steep.

I slide down a slalom with no sides and no bottom.

It stretches the truth, speaks lies, though that’s written.

I brood in my room and the light doesn’t reflect me.
A vampire with no gloom is a sightless rejection.
