Muffled buzzes surrounding your ears Ringing bells come through your head you heard the danger you knew the risk yet still you went I watched you walk away farther and farther until only the thought was left The night was ablaze a fire from within drowning in a burn it was a night to remember and a night I can't forget it's replying in my head a scratch in a tape I should of stopped you I shouldn't of let you go yet you were gone when mornings wind blew.
When she goes out, it's like it's her last night alive. When he goes out, he clears his mind by taking a midnight drive through the countryside. After a long night alone in an empty bar, she decided to take a chance and get in her car. He went out too but didn't make it very far. Only 10 miles. 10 miles from home, 2 lives were lost. 10 miles from home, she didn't think about the cost. 10 miles from home, 2 families will never be the same. 10 miles from home stands a memorial with a picture and their names
The name comes from a statistic that nearly 70 percent of car accidents happen within 10 miles from their home. Please be safe
She crashed the car when she lost her ****, and into the water’s embankment Then she got out and said sorry to the cement, she was almost laughing and no one saw it When the men in uniforms came, she tried to hide the bitter taste on her breath, because why should the criminal grin and the innocents be put to death? But even now when her daughter is bridged to a drip, the same bitter taste rests fresh on her lips
I had a nightmare last night. I got into a fight over a bet and... I stabbed my best friend Ben. I quickly ran into my car and drove off. I was driving so fast out of fear, I hit a pregnant woman crossing the road. I heard her loud screams but... I didn't wait. I only drove faster. I eventually stopped to catch my breath. I then picked up a random ******* the road. I ended up in her place and we made love. "Ouch" My head hurts so bad, What a messed up dream. Thank God am awake. Wait?!... where is this place?... Why is there blood on my shirt?!... ****! The random girl from my dream just walked in. Was my nightmare.... Real? Did I have too many bottles last night? Or am I still dreaming?... Oh God, Someone, anyone... Please wake me up.
Getting high is fun, until it leads to some very bad events...
It burrowed through her heart like a scared mole sending ripples of pain straight to her soul disbelief clogged her eyes as she watched discombobulated by a lot of images strange and very unrelated the air smelled of rose flower which scent didn't fit the moment for her skin was weaved in piercing thorns of torment her mind was a rim spinning contrary to the globe as a dull alien sensation throbbed beneath her lobe she could smell blood as vivid as it tested coppery and her sky blue eyes turned bloodshot and teary so much for an adventure she thought she couldn't place her position in her congested mind yet she had none but little strength much as she fought she perspired yet it was darker than sunny as she regretted focussing on the destination ,not the journey Entering her vintage car was all she could remember for her brain was roasting worse than a burning ember it was like going through hell head first made worse by the itching sub Saharan thirst she mourned and cursed but after a time passed she realised her agony was eating her voice and instead ******* whispers leaving her no choice but silence for she was suddenly voiceless and dumb she tried to lift limb after limb but all were numb she couldn't even blink as much as she couldn't think serpentine tears crawled out her chilly visage yet she could hardly scratch All she saw was a blurry image like she'd taken too much scotch Had she? Had she tried to drink away her pain ****, the steering pressed into her chest squeezing her heart, bruising her breast the agony,despair and pain was driving her insane she suddenly remembered every detail as the car heated she was escaping from reality whence she cheated Did she really think few bottles of bitter wine would fix her mistakes,that drunk she'd feel fine?
12:53am* The car clock blinks at me i feel its judgement through green digit numbers I cannot remember if it is running fast or a few minutes behind but I know the bars are starting to close and apartment lights begin to die off I accidentally think of you as I purposely forgot to secure my seat belt headlights off, i peel out the cracked screen of the stereo stares reminding me that I must deal with my screaming thoughts with no ****** pop songs to hide behind
I still taste it on my lips, a whiskey kiss but how long has it been since my lips have touched yours? I calculate the hours and my speedometer climbs the line of trees smear into a blur of brown I drift onto 26 from 45, coast on 322 bear right until i don't know where the **** I'm going roads like veins winding around to endless possibilities but this telephone pole look so **** inviting
you were the one who helped me to learn the color of my eyes but now my bleary blues shift to passenger seat to see nothing but a pack of 27s I expect the seat belt alarm to sound but then I remember that it's not you i toss the warning label away how can something be so toxic when the exterior is wrapped in gold but i still feel your tarnish in my lungs
I miss the turn to my house so i decide to drive on inching closer and closer to you wherever the hell that is as my gas supply dwindles i hope it's coming into my lungs
I pull over and throw up out the drivers side window the strain of my gut is not enough to rid you of my system if only my body recognized you as a toxin a few months sooner but God knows no hangover will ever keep me from coming back
I should mention that i am not an advocate of drunk driving or any dangerous behavior. I myself am not one to do this. I do not mean to romanticism or condone drunk driving.
There will come a day When all of the colors fade to grey When all of the flowers In the garden start to wilt When everyday is cloudy. The headlines hold names Of kids you grew up playing kickball with Being killed by people who thought That one more drink wouldn’t do any harm. People who thought that a party Was more important than Everyone else on the road.
Now, We have a four year old boy whose mama Won’t see him graduate preschool We have an eighteen year old girl whose daddy Won’t see her graduate high school. We have teachers Who don’t know how to educate To a classroom full of students Who have so many questions.
But the legal limit isn’t taught in textbooks.
This isn’t whether or not you feel That the law applies to you. This is life or death. This is Russian Roulette with a bottle. This is driving blindfolded With the music on too loud. This is a four year old boy Who still doesn’t understand What Heaven is. This is an eighteen year old girl Who’s wearing her graduation dress To her father’s funeral. The dress that her father helped her pick out. He said, “You know, sweetheart, I always loved you in black.”
This is crying for someone You never met. This is military homecomings or Babies smiling for the first time.
Except in reverse.
This is military homecomings in a box. This is babies crying for a mother Who cannot comfort them. This is empty spaces in a poem Where words should be. This is “I just saw them yesterday.” This is “I’m sorry for your loss.” This is... not knowing what the right thing to say is. She still had clothes in the washing machine. He had a T-Time for next Thursday. We had a dinner reservation next Friday. This is knowing that he will never have a birthday again. This was not something I was expecting I mean, who would? Photographs can’t capture a lifetime. They may be worth a thousand words, But you my dear are worth so much more.
He doesn't know limits. 2 on the wrist and hand on the 3. The other is out of the window with a firm grasp on the shoulder slipping. A hiccup. slipping as his words have been doing. slurred don't take caution nicely it sounded like he said. A hiccup he said he wouldn't he said he's fine he said he'll be there he said something A hiccup Something red flashes above him He doesn't know limits
All of it.
Not you, however. You can't.
Never did have alcohol before... Don't want it either...
