J.J. Campbell

breaking all the hearts


staring off in the distance

and it’s always the wrong

song that comes on


an old lover leaving,

breaking all the hearts


and soon your demons

are in the corner



you can’t fool them


they know you aren’t cut

out for life in this world


and no matter how much

you try being positive

it will never work for



those hands will always

be around your neck


you will always be

pinned to the bathroom

floor at your grandmother’s



therapy never worked


the drugs never helped


and even alcohol has

turned a cold shoulder


thankfully, you know

a guy and you still can

find a vein
