After Her (Poem #6)

You’re probably smiling

for being free

drinks in the club

taking women

to get it through the night

Scrolled your way 

pass through Tinder profiles

and ended up on someone else’s bed

but among all those girls you tasted

why is her name

still in your head?

On the first few nights

you drunk to celebrate

but days after that

you drunk to silence your heartbeat

What do you do

when you could no longer touch

what you used to hold?

You drown yourself in liquor

until it numbs you to your core


I post new poems every Friday. Thank you for reading ❤
