The hour has gone back
but my bottle is still dry
when the sun goes down

    Is this any way connected to your love to drink, Ben? I think that this is quite heavy...bearing much meaning.

      It is, Mel, but it is not entirely literal. I'm not a raving alcoholic yet, but by heaven, I'm working on it, dear woman!

    very clever Ben..

    it seems that because we lost the hour to 'alcoholics' it doesn't matter much because that bottle will be gone come daybreak regardless... sad but extremely powerful.

    Take care,

    All good things come to an end eventually. Intense for only few words.

    Interesting write Ben. I sense the sadness of the empty bottle and a long night ahead, alone. Well done-

    3 short lines, yet so intense and deep.
