Solemn Intoxication Pt. 2

Minds and missteps,
Where am I going
Tonight?
The feelings are dulled
With gentle intoxication.
Let’s see
Where numbness takes us.

I don’t know
If the pain will cease
But it feels drawn
To the skin’s surface
And loves the letting
Out.

Why am I in pain?
Why am I dysfunctional?
Why am I apathetic?
Why am I?

The questions don’t cease,
Though the night does.
And tomorrow I’ll work,
I’ll be distracted once more.
I’ll forget my wonderings
For only a moment
And they’ll return with the night
Or the liquor,

Whichever comes first.
