NEVER AGAIN!

he lights up a cigarette,
fumbling
with unsteady hands,
inhales
deep and slow
a methodical ritual
of numbness,
his eyes fixed
to the centre of nothingness,
drinks
the last of his thoughts
of what’s left
in the bottle of tequila,
he bought an hour ago,
alone
in his cockroach infested world,
dishes piled
in a grease pit of apathy,
oblivious
to the stale stench
of unwashed daily grime,
his world
spinning
quicker,
quicker,
ever quicker,
his deadened mind
unable to cope,
glazed,
reddened eyes
buried in watery graves,
rolling
in a sea-sick head,
slumped
in drooling indifference,
failing to make sense
of passing flashes
that blur
into fading forgetfullnes,
vanishing,
vanishing,
ever vanishing,
until all light
succumbs to a black hole
as he falls
into himself,
where even dreams
dare not enter,
breathe,
breathe,
ever breathe,
his final utterance
on this slurry night,
before he disappears
into
his unknown.

NEVER AGAIN!
