Empty Promises

The emptied bottle's contents                              
Are swirling down the drain 
But when tomorrow comes
She'll pay with pills and pain
Her meager meal is forgotten                                                                                                
Flushed down the greedy pipes
But when tomorrow comes
She'll just go on to cuts and stripes
The cigarettes are gone now
"Im gonna quit I swear"
But when tomorrow comes
Those words were never there
 The drugs are in the trash bin                             
The needles thrown away
But when tomorrow comes
She'll play a whole new game
The razors in the dumpster
Awaiting tomorrow's hurt                                   
Because when tomorrow comes                                      
The promises are worth as much as dirt

    Addiction is a disease, and once you fall into it, it's hard to escape. I know the challenges, and it's absolutely heartbreaking. Thank you for the share.
