hung-over

by Sarah Bessey

late night drinks

football

friends

why is it so easy to fall out

when you try to fit in?

I do - fit in

I’m just not sure

if it’s the best fit

Alcohol, that is

I so easily

lose control

binge beat

myself up

one day later

my head hurts

my heart races

why did I do what I do?

to feel better, to loosen up

to forget my worries, my mood

to blend in, easily, gently

but why do I need alcohol for that?

I’m cool enough already

right?

right

time to nap

forgive, forget

recover

And simply let

And so it is
