Drunk

affliction poem

Poem

 

Your lips – red as wine.
The wine I drink every night
and day – sweet, divine!

I see tears on your cheeks-
wet, burning your pallid skin.
Little smile, sad and grim.

I’ll dry these tears, promise!
Believe me, love, I swear,
my precious diamond I endear.

I didn’t want to hurt you!
I didn’t want to drink!
Hurt myself by hurting you.

Your hands are cold,
your face looks so old.
Your eyes are dead.
