Maybe the next time

As I awoke in my pit of despair

Laid out on the floor as a carcas left to rot

The flies were probably seeking their next meal

I was probably an eternity after the expiration date

Clutching my head as if it mattered

The afternoon sun pulsing through the dreary nets

The burning rays on my brow

Self pity was on my lips from the night before

Somewhere between the cheapest vodka and the stains on my shirt

A stream of bottles littered the floor

If only it was a river with a breakneck current

I wish it would suck me in never to return to my hell

Why is there always a next time?

An afternoon awakening sunrise

Maybe the next time I lose myself in the bottle

I can disappear for good

Abused; am I a fool?

.

Treat me mean

As you always do

It’s all I deserve

My life is through

.

I’m here to serve

Your every wish

Cut me deep

The pain is bliss

.

Your abuse often

It affects my mind

It turns my head

Just like wine

.

At least if drunk

I can forget

The marks you tread

Footprints left

.

I have no choice

To stay by your side

I am yours

I must abide

.

My heart broken

Just like my bones

Is this normal

No place like home

.

You always said

If I ever leave

You would get me

No reprieve

.

Would it be worse

Then the pain I feel

Forever faithful

This is real

.

Please, I have to go

Once and for all

Don’t worry about me

Am I a fool

Misery

In a cage all alone

Cannot move or even roam

Like a dog wandering round

Quiet now, not a sound

Beaten blue, bats and fists

No protection, never missed

So hungry, starving here

Darkness frightening, feeding fear

Why this abuse, what have I done

They’re sniggering, having fun

Just want it to end, set me free

End this pain, this misery.
