Well Whiskey

by Twisted Heart   Apr 6, 2007


As the bottle tips from lifeless fingers
The darkness pits against the wall
In the cool air, a stench still lingers
As footfalls sound out in the hall

Against the darkened shadows cast
Inside the room where bedding fell
Among the feelings of the past
Lie memories lost in this shell.

Too many nights the pain was waiting
Alone within the slumbered dreams
And though they came anticipating
Wounds to the soul burst at the seams.

No hope surviving from the hunger
That beats within the drink in hand
Just bits of hell that pull it under
And sifts among the pain that stands.

Now lifeless arms hold to the whiskey
A savior to the soul is thought
Blood dead eyes no longer seeing
As once again the bottle drops.

    Blood eyes dead and no longer see
