i sipped too many times
from that toxic chalice
of love desire delusion
sip hell!
i gulped i swigged
i drank myself into
an oblivion of madness

and when i awoke hung over
and stared into the mirror
we call reality
i saw a wreck of woman
reduced to a skeletal life
purged of all meaning

i am not the fiery liquor
of your dreams
i have by life’s harsh filter
been reduced to
charmless water
welcome only when
thirst is overpowering
