Drink your stupid drink
Until you get sick
Laying on cold tiles
As dehydrated
As you would be
After walking ten miles
With no signs of water
Not even a drop
To form a teardrop
Why does my heart stop
Pounding through my chest
When I stop
To catch a breath
I cannot take?
Couldn’t I catch a break?
Just snapped in half
Like stale bread
The paradise you see
Is only
In your head
I can see
The heat’s waves
In the air
No matter how long
Your arm waves
There is nobody there
And even if
Somebody was there
Do you think they would care?
Just another person stranded
Since the day we all landed
You cannot be handed
All of the world
On a silver tray
It’s about time
That you learned that
