Dear Insomnia, I'm going to Miss You ( But not Really)

Well old friend,

I suppose this is

about the time;

I am pressed

to bid you adieu. 

Adieu! With habit

I grew accustomed 

to your meandering

I am so sorry 

But it has come

Perhaps only a

Good Bye Insomnia, 

A fair-weather 

friend that stole

my umbrella 

when the rains 

came down.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
