Blackout

Stop

Look around

What do you see?

Alcohol bottles piled on the counters

LED lights flashing

Red

Blue

Green

Bodies grinding

Strangers mouths encasing yours

The embodiment of “fun” in a single room

 

Stop

Check it out

Can you even see?

A girl hunched over the toilet

Unsteady bodies falling to the soiled ground

Vision

Nothing more than blurred dots

More alcohol

More dancing

Don’t stop

It’s only 1 am

 

Stop

Open your heavy lids

Where are you?

Throbbing Silence

Gather your puke stained clothes

Walk barefoot home

Head pounding

Memories scattered

Sleep all day

Go out again

 

Stop

Think

What is this for?

What do you gain?

No regrets?

No shame?

No desire for…

More?

Don’t think

Take another shot

Take two

You can stop whenever you want

Right?
