On Drinking

Drink up he said
It will warm your soul
You’ll leave your worries behind
You’ll feel empty and high
I cry right now
In the chill night air
Remembering those words
And it still hurts
Though sober now
I feel no difference
I fear that you were wrong
It didn’t make me strong
I’m worse than before
Looking for an exit door
The wounds open wide
I stare blindly at the sky
I scream for your forgiveness
As I continue my ignorance
I want to see the light
But I’m still scared of the night
