REHAB
– by Neo Blaqness

My strength is drained
by the weight of each tear
that follows along the cracks
of my swollen face
filling the pillow
that we once shared
with each breath
I labor just to turn
my head away
from the scent
of your presence
re-hydrated by
my utter sadness
so blurred now
is my sight
from the river
flowing from my eyes
my ears muted
by the deafening
sobs from my heart
my body frozen
in spasmodic gasps
for air
through a bellowing moan
that once sang your name
so too must this
also pass
my withdrawal
from my addiction
to the toxic love
that was once
you
