Teenager Bottled

I hope you’re reading this now.

I erased all paths to your door,

Forgot conversations and wallowed.

I followed your wishes
And counted to ten.

I counted to twenty
And then back again.

None of it worked
And now I’m here
In this bottle,

I drunk all its contents
And wrote this note
With my tears.

Every thought wished
Is alive in this headache

And my heart isn’t broken
It’s just sick of my mouth.
