Sober? – A Poem?

Why does it feel so good?

In the moment it is all worth it

Just one more

A hit, a line, a pill, a bump, a lick

Why does it feel SO good?

They say they numb you

I find clarity without feeling

A sense of being

Beyond my mortal shell

Even through days of hell

Solace lies

At the bottom of the bottle

In this bag

Suspended in this capsule

An ineffable eternity waits

I grew up in a country that thinks it is better than it is and left because I wanted to know if the rest of the world was as crazy. These are the writings of a man trying to stay sane I'll post a story or poem every Wednesday
