Bad Medicine

By Laura
July 25th, 2016

I take another drink or two
Forget the things I never knew
To know the burning, searing pain
That things will never be the same

Insane they say, with charts and graphs
It's maddening; they never laugh
They'll never know what this is like
To sometimes feel, less of a dyke

I find peace in the dark today
It let's me live; just for a day
The life I never got to see
It's like I wasn't meant to be

They pray for me to go away
For me to find another way
But can't they see just who I am?
I never really was a man

I may have fit where they could see
I had the best abilities
But when I laid in bed at night
I cried because it wasn't right

Abused myself for years and years
Thoughts that preyed upon my fears
With echoes in my bed tonight
Awake until the morning light
