, , , , ,

she injected 100 proof into lost veins 

drowned in the wreckage. 

heart’s been misused 

so many times,

drained it of love 

so they could get high.

before tragic goodbye’s.

left her too broken, 

too scared

to get close. 

so she injected 100 proof 

into a broken heart 

for a one night stand 

of necessity, digging up 

the past, only to bury it again. 

with drops of crimson

lying under their beds.
