self medicating


I am running from the pain

Should probably take this drink

and poor it down the drain

Its too late I put it in my mouth

In a few minutes the alcohol will take over my brain

Its bittersweet torture

I know that sounds insane

but the thoughts I have of killing the pain

are the only thoughts that feel sane

even though I forget my problems for the night

I wake up in the morning feeling the same

The pain is never really gone

Just numb for the night until the morning comes

I don't want to do this anymore

I need a fresh start

I need to open a new door

A path that will one day heal me

Not a road that will one day kill me

No more self medicating

Give it up no hesitating
