We got drunk and kissed and sat around for hours. We talked of dreams and living by the sea. After the 13th one, my mind went elsewhere. Daydreaming of a place where I can bury all my grief. While I sit in my room loneliness creeps up on me and I feel more apathetic. All this weed I smoke, it's only temporary. Hey, I should quit. No, you said you'll still like me. I got my nose bloody before but not by a punch in the face. Feeling so weak and anxious.
All these beers I drink. I kill selected memories. I just want to see my future and be complete. Though I may not succeed you sure did teach me something. Don't give up and be all you can be.
We may take different paths but you'll still be my best friend. Telling me stories of all those dirty men. I'll still call to tell all my problems that I think are big. All my binges and high conversation.
Maybe I'll see you somewhere down this crazy road. You can read my article in the Washington Post. I just hope I helped you cause you sure did help me. You taught me something. Don't give up and be all you can be.
