hook, line and sink Her

Today the blurry vision calls to her Last night She drank too much And to be honest, She doesn't know why It was without reason She awoke this morning and the air was screaming at Her to breathe once more And sobriety, alongside it, telling Her "It's okay to put down the bottle" faint whisper. Experience soberness and that it's okay to feel Afraid. OF WHO YOU ARE WHEN YOU'RE SOBER It's a whole different person. Who is powerful, creative and connected but it's also, someone who feels so mcuh and feels the pain all too well And sees the demons people describe as medicine She can step in-between all the heavens and hells So, yeah, She's terrified of who she has become because she can become so much more if she just allows desire to infiltrate one day at a time. And today, I miss her and her wings Wounded, but still flying and today, I miss her and her smiles and laughter That presently exist, but could.. ever multiply And today, I miss her because She's been skipping meals because a demanding voice yells inside her brain and head That hasn't been there for a while.. But has once more, returned See, the darkness loves to imprison her and cause her to backslide but I think, now, She's ready to catch it Hook, line and Sinker So maybe this is her making a decision to be better again to be strong and to beat those demons down 12/15/17
