Melancholy

Written by: Kristopher Higgs

"Another Drink!", I screamed.
A fifth down and a fifth to go. 
This burning water quenches a dark thirst only I know.
Comfortably numb I sit and seem. 

And in this dream within a dream I sit a watch
As colors dissolve and memories fade in a blackened blotch. 
With my brow hung low in a bastards gleam;
Comfortably numb I sit and seem. 

God, how quickly everything can fade away.
Oh God, how easily I fall into the gray.
I close my eyes and form a crooked smile, life's easier this way.
Comfortably numb I sit and stay.
