Inebriated Lullaby

Location

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.
