Worn

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,

We drink.
