We were met on two shores trying to get to the beach we both knew the terminus stood just out of reach and we settled for us with the thought in our heads that if something improved we’d move out of there.
Then the storm had subsided and none of us cried it was more than we’d hoped for and mother just moped there for days but we’ll raise her spirits buy in more spirits and drink her a toast while the waves belt the coast.
Have another drink, Why don't you? Take another sip? The bartender's watching us closely but If I give him a hearty enough tip He'll leave us be And we can slip Down to the train tracks Like our slurred words.
We won't make love but we'll Lay on the mercury speckled rails Singing our heads off, Drinking some more ail till The horn blares and The insides of our eyes pool with gaudy lights from Heaven above
And we're rolled to bits, Leaving nothing behind but a trail Of blood and The heavenly light of tails.
I wish I could have made it a little less shallow but it messed with the already poor rhythm
I can't stop thinking about her. We drank and laughed, I think it was the first time I drank to remember rather than to forget. She asked me to kiss her and I laughed. "Anytime" I said. I meant it I backed up to grab another drink, afraid that I might give in to the strangth of the ***** in my hands. Even after you had thrown up, you had looked at me and laughed. You were pretty all the time That night I slept with your head on my lap, hoping it was you who asked, not your drink. That was months ago and Ive been waiting for another sign. Im afraid it was only me
This is the perfect time to write I’m right at the end of 25 years on this planet Sitting in a bar at 3:14 pm on a cold Thursday in January, 2021 I’ve had a bad day So I decided driving by this bar that I was gonna stop and have a drink because that’s what I needed today So far I was right I ordered a angry orchard on an empty stomach and drank the first half really quickly so I’d get that good buzz really quickly the nice bartender, an older lady asked me if wanted food so I asked for a menu because, why not? I’m broker than ever and can’t really afford to be doing what I’m doing right now but what’s an extra 6.99 on pretzel sticks with beer cheese? It’s beer cheese for heavens sake. when the going gets tough, the tough get going to get a good drink on tap I don’t know what I’m doing most of the time I get lucky I guess My whole life has been built on me Completely on me to decide where I’m gonna go and how my life is going to look That’s kind of scary honestly that my life and my sons life relies completely on my shoulders I can’t ***** up I can’t give up So we will just keep going
