Jan 2018
High tides in the wicked waters, she led me ashore
She pulled me from the undertoe
She saved me on my darkest nights
Drowned out my sorrows for a sort while
Silenced the demons in my mind, rescued me from myself
She was my temporary fix, she was my false solution
Medicated, numbing but soothing
I used her to get through the abyss
I am supposed to leave her alone,
But when I was alone, she gave me comfort.
I found love in the bottle.
