I’m stricken by the sight of you,
You cleave my soul in two,
One side wants to have you,
The other wants to run!

I didn't want to fall in love again
I really didn't want anything
But seeing you here and now
I want everything

Crumbling when faced with the harsh
Reality that the vision of
Us is a lie. A
Silent break down of emotions and
Having to temporarily lose all control
A tongue that twists to whisper words
lips that kiss me with a verse
a wish or curse?

A man that stands no chance
Her stanza's propaganda
A mantra and a answer

She sows her words in rows
The poet knows her prose
And so it grows and grows

I keep rubbing my hands for heat
Trying to warm you but not melt you-
To hold you in any state I can
You're consistent as water
Obsession is an addiction that preys on the desperately distracted
A sure sign that I'm not healed

he's here

and once again i fall slowly
light as a feather
gravitating to the river
to be washed away
by the peaceful flow
Alcoholic,
That's what I am.
Numb,
That's the brand.
Comfort,
That's all I want.
Memories,
That's what you haunt.
Escape,
That's what I try.
Inside,
That's where I die.

I came to the realization, through my Intensive Outpatient Program, alcohol really does have control over my life.

You call me a liar
I wish I was dead
You are always there
Buzzing round my head

Why won’t you leave me?
Why aren’t you near me?
Why must you deceive me?
Promise not to leave me

You called me your lover
You messed with my mind
Then you just ghosted
And left me behind
