poetry by j matthew waters

reverse psychosis

they took me from the workplace
with complete brutality
my body slowly deteriorating
from the inside out
my mind awash in alcohol

my comfort zone disappeared
and I was left with nothing but
unanswered questions
reeling from a sickness
that struck without warning

I was told never to worry
that a new reality would unfold
how I would fall fast asleep
for nearly a lifetime
only to awaken as a god

december two thousand twenty-two
