A Pill a Day

A Pill a Day

I measure my weeks
In the number of pills
I take to calm down
To continue to exist

Not too many
Not to get a habit
Count them out
Don’t take too much

Should I overdose
Never mind

Too many things
For the little pink pills
To take care of
To make unexist

  1. The beauty of writing poetry is it allows us to briefly express those thoughts we have without having to go into long winded prose explanations. I too like this poem and I feel you are using them to get out what it is that may be bugging you at the time. And this is a good thing, I use it too in many of my poems and thankfully only a few people who know me closely ever catch on to what I am saying. But for me its a good exercise and I hope for you too.


    1. Thank you for your insights. You always make me either laugh or think or both. You’re right, I don’t mean to produce actual poetry, I just throw in some words together to express my concerns. Your writings are really too veiled for people who don’t you in person to tell from them what you’re thinking.
