Escape From Pain

Whiskey is never the answer

sometimes just the distraction that is needed

not a solution

just something to hopefully help the pain go away

disrupt the neuron flow

trick the brain into thinking the body is ok

help me to misremember that it hurts to cough

that it hurts to laugh

that I cried trying to brush my hair this morning

help loosen me up and have it not hurt so bad

lost in the fear of wondering

if it is supposed to hurt like this

fearing my own incapability

cried myself to sleep last night

woke with the same pain

should it feel like this?

oh whiskey, lets chat for a while

so that you can lull me to sleep
