Liquid Savior

Poison of the lips masked as pain.

She lies down as the sun comes up

Wakes into despair as the moon rises

In the cabinet lies her savior

Soothing words she longs to hear

Whispering it’s okay

Lyrics to a complicated song

Worthlessness slips into her veins

Riding the flow of fire down her throat

Anger expelled through her lips

Words she’s tired of turning over in her head

Passing it on to the nearest ear

Poison of the lips masked as pain
