Blink

Written by: Joseph Granda-Padron

& it's gone
flushed away     never
really meant anything
if anything was meant 
to come of it.

regardless, though, got to keep
going    try to make sense of it all
of
it
all.  Six months I been clean
sober strong 
thirsty

& tomorrow's the last day
of the year     the bottle's
are waiting     calling out my name
C
A
R
L
O
S     I've been waiting for you!!!

My blood starts to sweat
My lungs begin to implode
& a massive piece of my soul
remembers rehab.

To hell with it.
Doesn't mean a thing
if this thing ever meant 
anything.

I'll do what i know best:
Drink
write
Drink & write some more
& Drink a little more

& when my wife calls the Cops
& i head back to the psyche ward
I'll simply 
start
all
over
again.
