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.
