Lead you in

Mind diluted
with potent somnolence,
you said you just wanted
some goddamn sleep,
but what you got instead
was a psych ward.

It wasn’t a want to die,
just a desire to drink down repose
and toss the bottle of empty pills
into last week-
that’s what you swore,

but level with me honey.
We both know
that no one swallows
melatonin and opiates
with such abandon
without praying
that angels will lead you in.
