Give me something strong,
that will make me forget,
make the pain go away.

Give me something that will burn,
down my throat,
for days.

Give me something to burn my insides out,
something like poison,
something like doubt.

Give me something that will make you notice,
how I still look at you,
how much I miss you.

Give me something that will warm me,
like you used to,
and never will.

Give me a sip of the hate,
that you show me,
it's too late.

Give me something that saves me,
I'm not successful,
for long.

Give me something to hide the scars,
that run so deep,
and still bleed.

Give me the bottle,
there's no tomorrow,
for me.

I wrote this over the summer, when I was in a very bad spot in my life... now I'm fine and feel it's okay to publish it.
