does a bottle's rim
caress your lips
the way I used to?
is it awake all night
to speak you despite
the day coming soon?
and does it sing to you
before you fall asleep
to dream of life
where you mustn't drink a bottle
to feel like what's around you is real?

and does your boyfriend think
that you only drink
to feel some comfort?
and will he ever know
that you once before
were happy as you were?
and at the bottom of this bottle
lies regret
consuming you
and it wants what you can't give it
when I just want forgiveness
like you

and are your parents proud
of how your life turned out
is it everything they dreamed?
and do your friends supply
the endless lies
to make you feel redeemed?
and will they be patient enough
to watch you slip
and crash into a sea
that swallows any swimmer
who dares enough to enter?
they won't

you choose to dream
when you could have anything
but me
and the past
in the palms
of your hands

and do you think I care
after what we've shared?
I'm not sure if I do
it's your mistake to make
but I refuse to stay
and watch your life slip through
the middle
of your fingers just like sand
that scatters with the wind
into every direction
take comfort in your destruction
without me
