Hangover

The cramps in my stomach

are getting worse

while my head is heavy

and my mouth is dry from thirst.

Daylight is breaking

through the curtains,

this is the day

I will die for certain.

I am not suffering from

some catastrophic illness

but at the moment

I cannot see a path towards wellness.

A few too many glasses of wine

has led to this predicament,

flat on my back

feeling far from omnipotent.

My head is full of regret

that I was not stronger

because the older I get,

my hangovers last longer.
