Drunk (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #7)   Leave a comment

Drunk on power
Drunk on fame
Drunk on loathing
Drunk on shame

Drunk on ego
It's the new style
Drunk on memories
So you'll stay a while

Drunk past midnight
Not going home
Drunk before noon
'Cause you woke up alone

Drink away worries
Drink away mind
Drink to feel something
Drink away time

Drink away sorrow
Drink away pain
Drink 'til tomorrow
Then do it again
