    staring at the clumsy moon
    that made night fall
    and left the earth bruised
    the sky is scarred
    with the darkest of hues
    battered and beaten
    blackened and blue

    the day concludes
    as if life has gone
    she deads sobriety
    when left alone
    and wallows in regret
    as time drags on
    her secrets
    are like a sagging thong
    bottomless

    struggles with low self-esteem
    lead to her experimenting
    now she gets high
    off any and everything
    adding mile after mile
    to her traveling
    she went from lost in the crowd
    to following boyfriends
    through medicated clouds
    where the highs never end
    but the lows never go
    so its a catch 22
    and 21 was too young
    to deal with grown woman issues
    like abuse

    there’s nothing sexy
    about being passed out
    wet in the face
    with knees on the ground
    tending heavy tears
    that pulled sweat down
    crying a river
    ready to drown
    listening to drake
    hating the sound
    that’s all she remembers
    about last night at compound

    her monday mistakes matured
    from truth or dare
    to roulette on tuesday
    with no bullets to spare
    Russian
    taking shots too fast
    chasing wounds on wednesday
    begging thursday to come back
    she has a weekend weakness
    that keeps her hung up on hangovers
    the rock star lifestyle
    is hard to get over
    and so is staying sober
