I’m beginning to lose it all.
My life may look pieced together.
But, my mind a haze.
My limbs, numb.
My eyes, lazily gaze around.
Posture, never straight.
I feel the hope slipping away from my eyes.
No matter how much I try,
My heart just won’t lie.
A smile blocks the concerns or the stares.
Everyone’s world hang on their shoulders.
Fact is, the heavier mine gets,
The quicker I am to turn to my drinks.
The colder the better.
I know this isn’t the way.
I know I can take control.
But right now,
I just don’t care.
Every second wears away my strength.
My heart is just strong enough to get by,
But come tonight,
