Booze and Toothpaste

Booze and toothpaste

The strong scent of cologne

I wander in closer

You ask if I’m alone.

I lie; say ‘no dear

My friends they all are here’

you look around the room

Say ‘no one’s that pretty here’.

Booze and toothpaste

The strong scent of cologne

You push back my long hair

Say you could take me home.

You buy me one drink

Then a couple more

Say I’m exactly what

You are looking for.

Booze and toothpaste

The strong scent of cologne

They all overcome me

And now we’re all alone.

Booze and toothpaste

The strong scent of cologne

These things remind me

Of why I should stay home.

Help.

She cried for help

Begged you; please

She just needed

For you to see

Who she was

And what she needs

She just needed

Anything

Acting out

And breaking down

Screaming:

Can you hear me now?

 

A cry for help

The bitter words

She just wanted

Her voice to be heard

The pills they eased

Her wild mind

All that helped her

Lose track of time

 

A cry for help

Now too late

The bitter truth

A bitter fate

All on Me

Blame it all on me

Stack it on my misery

I’m low enough

I know you see

A foot from the bottom

But blame it on me

No one care anyway

It’s just that girl

What’s her name

Blame it all on me

See how easy it can be

All your problems all your shame

They’re just calling out my name

Write.

Line by line

And word for word

Writing makes voices heard

I’ve never had much to say

But with a pen

Words;

I will display

Not always pretty

I’ll admit

But nothing could make me quit

I’m writing now

I will write on

I’ll be writing

Until I’m gone
