apathetic darts

i slip into
apathy easily
a soft robe
on naked flesh
where anxieties
slip into a
dull hum of static
at the edge
of insipid thought

a soothing sense
of nothing mattering
shutting down
turning off
riding off on
the last white line
as the electrons
happily disperse

there is danger
in being numb
that’s why morphine
doesn’t take away
any of the pain
it just makes you
indifferent to it

run your tongue
over my skin
and let the world
fade to nothing
i can be your forever
in apathetic haze
a walking opioid
scientifically engineered
to take your pain away
in one hard to swallow
pill of bitter sadness
