Eighty Proof (standard:poetry, 83 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Nov 26 2011Views/Reads: 1692/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Some people lose someone and heal, but everyone's method differs...

Take the flask 

Out from my pocket 

If it were 

Some golden locket 

What's the point 

If I've forgot it 

Killing me 

Slow death you see 

Can't say why 

I'm drowning she 

Adored me once 

But since has gone 

A tell-tale sign 

Of something wrong 

And now I too 

Am lost to you 

To live inside 

A bottle who 


Has taken me 

And drained me of 


The past I see 

One big mistake 

And drink my life 

For her fair sake
