Gray, Dorian, age 25

Write this. Right now.
Better yet.
Burn this. Right now.
And maybe you can save yourself.
Maybe you can save me.

Before I creep.
And slide.
I shuffle.
And jig.
I worm.
My way.
Into your good graces.

Your soul.

I eat away.
At everything pure.
Like a cancer I’ll grow.

You’ll think of me.
Look for me.
Want me.
Touch yourself.
To me.

But don’t look.
In the mirror.
Don’t believe.
Your face is getting thinner.
Dark circles.
Bloodshot eyes.
You will believe.
They all believe.

Physical signs.
Sins manifest.
Wrinkles.
Grays.
Boils.
Sores.
They all feel the same.
Sin.
So adore.

Don’t look back.
You just might see.
Scar tissue.
Slashing your soul.
Into an ugly portrait.
A gaping hole.
Of a boy.
Not a man.
Never a man.
Riding.
Dangerously.
Close.
To.
The rails.
