Quietly In Sobriety

Take a hit I did before to close
my hands around this bloody rose.

Cartarize my flesh wounds deep
to fix skin and bone to sleep keep.

I’ll be out back with some liquor
to make what all I’ve done feel quicker.

Running over and over about things
I can do nothing about in a tree I swing.

I’m put back together I’ve got shit
figured out now while here in this pit.

I wake to play in the day I am clay.
Lovely songs I’ll play for you to sway.

Underneath is a reef scorned dieing
trying to heal on the surface lieing.

I am taking it day by day say quietly
I do with a whisper I’m not in sobriety.

It’s okay I am fighting a fight I fight
tonight light is so blight but I’m all right.
