The Hangover

It began,
as an innocent drink.

Then, after several more,
the mind began to sink,……..
into a million little pieces,
frought with love and pieces of hate.

The world around her,
started to crumble,
and it made her mouth stink.

She hated the way good things turned to bad,
She hated the way the butterflys fluttered.
She hated the fact that she couldn’t lie…
anymore, to her mother.

Her mother wished she would stop.
she did the best she could,
But, the world was all around her,
and it got softer,
with every drink.

She begged the Lord for forgiveness,
he gave her all that he could,
in the mornig when light came through the window,
she shrugged, and fought it,
as she knew she would.

Oh, how sweet the drink,
she told herself,
Oh, how it would soothe her mind…
but, in the morning, light crept in…….
and ached her aching mind.

She swore again to never do that,
she knew it wasn’t good.
She knew that only she could find the answers in the woods.

She, prayed to the porcelain God,
she swore she would never do it again…
in the end……..,
she didn’t listen…..,
What she really needed,
was a friend.

Someone who understood her,
someone that knew her plight.
Someone who wouldn’t use her,
for their own selfish delight.

Damn you, alcohol.
Damn you to pieces.
Why do you make me feel so free,
then in the morning,
RIP ME TO PIECES !!!!!!!!!!!!
