Love Drunk

~To Love or Not to Love
Is the question

I sit here riffing at 6am
sifting through the scattered pages
of love long gone

....................................

As this love sickness
still resides inside my infected heart
plaguing my soul
Torn and tattered
as if our Love never even mattered
Watching the sun rise with swollen eyes
at morning dawn

...............................................

Rememberin­­g your
eyes ablaze with passion and desire
Before my soul was poisoned
by your toxic fire
Burning my heart
Twisting and turning Our Love
inside out

................................................

Now we're apart
and my poetic heart is slowly dying
This intoxication from
our Once Upon A Time Love
Death from remembrance
It scrapes away inside me
Rum soaked and drenched
in a drunken slumber
Constantly Inebriated 
I now suffer

...............................................

You're so shiny and clean on the outside
purified by the fire
The blaze never reaching your heart
But it's still rotten as a corpse
and I found out to late
That there was no antidote
from the bite of this snake

..............................................

Our Love so absorbed
in these crimes of passions
I'm always paying the price
Taking chances
Rolling the dice
The cost is too high
I can't take another DUI

.........................................................

I­­f I GET BEHIND THE WHEEL
SOMBODY'S GOING TO DIE
