I put down the glass and drew back fast,
but on the counter it would not stay
for all i know, with one more swallow
all my problems could fade away.
staring in the morrow above the bathroom sink
my vision blurred with the weight of the drink.
i struggled to make eye contact
but i couldn’t face the fact
that the person i saw was no longer
who i thought i was
or who i wanted to be.
a wrenched stomach and a softened mind
only wanting to find an answer
but this little dancer fell to the floor
just couldn’t stand it anymore.
