Time to run only leading to stumbling soon
Diminishing my reaction time but it’s alright I’m home
Behind doors that cannot protect me from my mind
One more glass then I’ll write of what I’ll find
Unrestricted by any noises a militant second hand makes aloud.
When I start overthinking it’s past time to read
Sick of myself forty proof my reprieve
Burn overthinking away sip after sip until gulps start
Tightly held stress falls apart until the potion ceases
It smears problems never erases or eases at all
A liquid reminder falling counts regardless of feeling said fall.
