Put that Xanax down,
stop sucking dick.
Stop posting all night about dying on social media
for likes, sorrows and attention
that you know you always need…
and always need…
stop calling him
stop scaring your mother
who cried tears
and told you to your face
that your pain is killing her
can you stop, please?
stop being bipolar
stop being depressed
stop being anxious
stop trying to make your madness look pretty
stop popping plan B’s to cover up your last nights
stop looking like you have it altogether
when you know that death knocks on your door
and sleeps with you every night
you have a lot to lose
and you have already lost a lot
but you stopped caring about all that didn’t you
