Sipping my life from bottles,
Bottling my tears,
Drowning your fears.
Simply sipping and sipping and slipping then drinking then gulping and…..
Up it comes…
Too much life trapped in too many bottles,
Too many tears stoppered,
To drown my fears
Only sitting and sipping….never thinking
Just gulping and drinking..never thinking and
Up it comes….
The whole damn lot.
Thoughts. Memories. Blame. Shame. Guilt. Love. Loss. Grief. Mistakes. Regrets. Simply…only…just….
