Hello?

I knock

There is no answer

I can hear the tv in the background

I try the door 

It opens almost on its own

The smell of stale cigarettes fill my nostrils

Empty vodka bottles litter the floor

He sits crumpled on the bed

It looks unnatural

The oxygen machine is on but his chest isn’t moving

I reachout to make him more comfortable but he is cold and ridgid 

Lifeless

I put my head on his chest and cry

I love you Dad
