The Day I Get So Much Diarrhea

TW: Physical Sickness

to the point where I have to take an Imodium

to clear out the bees stuck in my intestines,

the beehive of my stomach,

always gurgling,


wanting more

when there’s no more room left

for anything.

The bile rises like a train on tracks

going 150 mph,

another train going in the opposite direction,

in how many miles will they meet?

Hopefully never but the true answer is always.

I swallow it back down in an attempt

to gaslight myself,

pretend that I’m fine

when a thousand bees are stinging my insides

and only getting louder in their anger.
