an old one from my note books, don't think it has been posted before, at least not when I was sober anyway.
Alcohol soothes my soul
making me restful, where I slip
into a daze folded on night-club tables.
It preserves my flesh from ageing
and keeps me shimmering.
My eyes stare across the room,
instead of at her face.
She was but a wet dream dancing here
for me but I could not concentrate.
I am lost in glory of tribal dances,
the strangers touch and fade off,
a smoke filled room of beautiful pictures;
fall out into night, the bright night hurts
my eyes, I am walking in euphoria
but watched as prey. I will not defend,
I will succumb, elegant stars against
the never-ending sky,
I am duller than them, my thoughts
speed randomly - I am in love with all I meet.
Continue the crawl - senses dislocated
and lying on the floor, all is positive,
I sleep down sedated.
The dawn rushed to meet me,
and I answered back
not sure of whether I was awake
or still dreaming.
It's in your eyes a fire that's wild and glorious
Unhibited, unfinished in everything I do Let the morning rise like our hearts desire" whipping boy
