Tears of a Clown

Is it worth feeling when all you feel is bad?
I have a friend who keeps me from getting mad.
Sometimes it's better to just be numb,
so you can be ready when the hurt comes.
Only a small sip will settle me down, 
a few more and I feel like a clown.
Don't mind the tears that fall from these eyes,
many nights I just sit here and cry.


*for a friend who had a problem with drinking today he is "clean" and happy.
