pills and alcohol

if.

if all the pills and alcohol

could wipe the slate clean;

then what would the night slumbered dream?

a provoked moon.

a late moon shines and watches the midnight shadows

dance within the footing trees below.

sought bare skin glows.

if all the pills and alcohol

could wipe the slate clean;

then whispers would waken the dream.

the Michigan snows jilted

and left the lakes in a scarcity.

the sun will set

and still burn off to the west of Pittsburgh.

if all the pills and alcohol

could wipe the slate clean;

then what would the night slumbered dream?

severed

found myself wrapped up in a chain

and sacrificed my sanity.

turned in my reality

for something that made me go insane;

it was a losing game from the beginning.

all in a moment,

her beauty will draw you in

and make you forget where you have been.

hypnotic thought beats in a heart;

and make you forget where it all starts.

her web, you will find

window shop in her welcoming glass;

and buy into her poisonous ass.

 found myself wrapped up in a chain

and sacrificed my sanity.

turned in my reality

for something that made me go insane;

losing game.
