bad news

Stunning

the grey room

saw your number
on my phone
when it rang
didn’t think to answer it
already heard the news
didn’t want it to be true
left my phone where it lay
poured a shot of whiskey
grabbed the bottle instead
the burn hit my throat
loosened my limbs
set my mind at ease
relief, just for a night
exactly what i needed

saw the icon
on my phone
when the bottle was done
a little 2 in the corner
two tries and you were gone
relief turned to tears
someone poisoned my drink
cause I’m sliding into misery
where calmness once reigned
i want something stronger
a pill or potion to numb this pain
but there’s nothing but me
and my loneliness to get
through the rest of this day
