Death in a Bottle [revised]
Drinking his gluttony, lies, and fate,
Consuming all that liquid of hate.
Despair, tears, and bruises surround him.
Drinking away his pain, he numbs them.
Turning his feelings to fake, over his life it’ll take.
Running away from all of his problems,
He picks his poison to sing his anthem.
Misery, scars, and anger devour him.
Drinking away his aches, he numbs them.
Nearing that last breath; nearing the Valley of Death.
To his seat all the way he wobbled,
Pushing the gas full throttle.
Memories – a burnt family tree – flash before him.
He drank away his hurts to deaden them,
Until he went full throttle.
Until he finished his Death in a bottle.
