Spoken Words

You said hello,
I was intrigued.
You said you wanted to help,
I was taken in.
You said you’d be there,
Was that a lie?
You said you cared,
Was it all an elaborate trick?
You said you were sorry,
Did you even mean it?
You said goodbye,
Maybe it was a blessing in disguise.

Just Walk Away

You were my friend

Or so you often said

But time and time again

You proved that statement wrong

You regurgitated the same words

Over and over each time thinking

That they would lose the stench

Of the lies they carried with them

But you only used me

You got what you needed

Maybe you did help me out

As you schemed along the way

But ultimately it was you who lost

Someone who was a true friend

I Hate the Disease, Not the Man

You did it again

Made me feel

Less than three inches tall

Your allegations

Your venomous words

Only caught you back in the same old lie

You promised

You said so

But it was all empty words again

I fell for it

I was suckered again

And you still got your vodka for the night

But in the end

The lies too much

Drove me away and you to death

The empty bottle

Lays by the bed

As the mortician removed your body

Inseparable

I’m a pretty easy-going person

I have a lot of patience

And I can tolerate a lot

But I do hate one thing

It is not your inability to quit

it is not the shell of your former self

it never was you

but the demon that controlled you

forced you to lie

forced to keep drinking

forced you to walk away

the demon that ended your life

I hate that alcoholism

Took you away forever

From a daughter that needed you

And from me who still loved

The man drowning in the bottle

Shattered Dreams

I just can’t believe it

I’m so angry I could spit

You broke your promise again

I feel like I can never win

Shattered dreams in the night

Hoping it will work out right

 

You swore this time you wouldn’t do it

But I sit here watching you get lit

You’re past the all night partying age

Your latest lie gives me pure rage

Shattered dreams in the night

Hoping it will work out right

 

The last straw that broke my back

Was because of compassion you lack

My mom’s death didn’t keep you sober

That’s when I knew it was over

Shattered dreams in the night

Hoping it will work out right

 

You kept drinking all day

No matter what I’d say

I couldn’t watch you slowly die

I was tired of my nightly cry

Shattered dreams in the night

Hoping it will work out right

 

And in a short time

You were no longer mine

You died in your bed

Still with demons in your head

Shattered dreams in the night

Nothing about this was right

Past the Point

He lied again

Right to my face

Said he was at the bar

It’s his hiding place

He lies all the time

Drinks night and day

And spend hours away

Doing what I can’t say

I’m now past the point

Of angry and mad

Irate is the emotion

I suddenly had

I won’t do this anymore

I have had enough

Out the door he goes

With all of his stuff

The Lies Return (FOWC)

In the dead of night
The darkness falls
Sending the masses home
Leaving a stark barren street
Echos of a distant train
Split the silence
A cat is on a silent prowl
Looking for food
And as you sleep
Dreams floating through
The madness comes to call
Sending you into nightmares
Where fate takes control
And you must meet
Your demons face to face
For the lies you told
Will always come after you
Sooner or later
