Sober-Part 2- They Reply

You don’t want me anymore?
You sniveling little wimp!
I own you
Don’t you see?

How many Day One’s
Have there been?
How many more
Will you declare?
How many times did you fall?
…Fail?

You always return
Because…
I own you
Can’t you see?

Don’t look away
I will be here for you
I will ease the pain
I will soothe the sorrows

You don’t want me anymore?
Quiet
Listen to your heart
A pulse of anticipation
You need me
Now you see

Come closer
Remember my bitter-sweet taste
Hold me in your hand
Lift me to your lips
Taste me
I will take you where you need to be
Forever with me

I own you

Sober

This is hard to say…
I don’t want you anymore
Yet, I tremble at the thought
You have been here
It seems forever
You kept every promise
You satisfied every need
I don’t want you anymore
When my world crumbled
You took hold of my hand
When I held my breath
Demanding to die
You whispered lies of hope
We danced dreams together
I don’t want you anymore
I close my eyes
And suck your bitter-sweet essence
Slowly you reduce me
You take me away
I don’t want you anymore
Tomorrow will break
And you will be gone
A fresh beginning
A Day One
I don’t want you anymore
