Do you remember? All that advice I gave? Sincere, highly sought and at times unsolicited. I had all the answers when it wasn’t my turn. When my rhythm was real good and real right. 

Then immersed in & numbed by maladaptive coping mechanisms I was wooed into cataclysmic, organic, orgasmic, climatic throes of denial.  

Heartbreak has burnt my clutch. Wore me down. Glasses off. Contacts out. Looking for my crown. Hypersensitive to the slightest touch. Airbrushed smile now masks the frown. 

Do you remember? All that advice I gave? Thanked me cause your life it saved?
Well it’s not easy being a hypocrite. Somebody’s gotta do it…on the road to hell with good intentions paved.
