Paint Me Bleak - Poem by Emery Hinton

Inhale. New view. Speeding, rolling,
who cares. Entering oblivion, unknown
destinations. Violated by wandering
eyes. Warm water surrounds me and
vodka burns my throat. Voices coming
from every direction, short giggle,
heads in a haze, tingling. Tight hands
gripping my body. My head, my heart,
my body revolts, nothing moves.
Silent tears slip down my face.
Breaking away, i let the hot
water envelop my body and darkness
becomes my only view.
