I Am So Alone – Micro Poem

I am so alone that I have time to flick my tongue over my lips and feel the cracks on them.

I am so alone that I can finally feel the occasional twitch in my left eyelid.

I am so alone that I can smell grief and it’s nothing like I have smelt before.

I am so alone that I can hear my heartbeats drumming against my ribcage, not the usual lub-dub.
