I want drugs
But I like you better sober

I wish I could help him be sober. I wanted to be his drug, but I guess that's what choices are for..

I became addicted
To Everything I thought I could have
And lost my taste
For everything
That seemed Unattainable

free *gift of sobriety*

free gift of sobriety
that makes
life and laughter possible

Written in gratitude for a nice visit from my mother and brother with my daughter.

The hurdles I must cripple
gauze against breath
within this gripe
of well patrolled
polite sobriety

What clarity can I operate ?

take a breath
expel a myth
pattern a thought
create an action
reset and repetitude

Sobriety is what keeps me tethered

Sobriety is what keeps me tethered
That which forcese to remember
Lost causes covered in failed attempts
At this life, at my life
While inhaling to forget
High above reality
Living each day by a dime
Until life is but a suggestion
And I'm back to where I started

I'm trying

but I don't see the point
when all I really wanna do
is smoke a  fucking joint

or maybe
just a couple beers
would help make things
a bit more clear

It might help my anxiety
but i'd lose my sobriety


I won't let it win
Instead, I think

Where are you to share in my sobriety?

Two weeks drug free.
I did it for myself,
I did it for my sister
for you
and for her.

Cravings don't wake me up at night anymore.
I can hold a cigarette without my hands shaking
and I can look my mother in the eye.

Where are you to share in my sobriety?
Where are you to help me through it?
(Where are you?)

I've been better

I am running
out of daylight and in this
forgotten chasm, soon

I will meet my own
fate to become star-blinded
But I do not mind.

My telluric heart
is going to lose its poor
blindspots of stifling

sobriety by
embracing your ravenskinned,
asterisk lighted nightshade.
