Oceans in a Bottle



I rest my head on empty bottles 
in an attempt to bury 
all of the burdens 
of an emotional king; 
in hopes to syphon my mind dry just once a night. But it never works 
and I come to understand 
that the bottles were never really empty, 
they just aren't large enough; 
there simply aren't enough 
to contain the daily sorrow 
I swallow for you.
