Dull the pain

I am looking for a way to dull the pain
To put my mind in a gray haze
To lose my sanity from thoughts of you
Rushing over the hills and valleys

I'll finish my tonic till I'm across the bed
Staring at the ceiling, counting the moments
Till my mind fades to black till the 'morrow
And I will begin again. Pour another tonic

Need to dull my pain
Put you out of my head
And forgive my sin
Love is my weakness

I've lost control and can't find my mind
You stole the riches of my soul
You have put me on the run
To become whole again, letting go

Need to dull my pain
Put you out of my head
And forgive my sin
Love is my weakness

Time to sleep and dream, tonic please
The sweet remedy running thru me
Alone, quiet, I watch the shadows
Seeing you fade away, my mind finds peace

The pain is gone
You're out of my head
I'm forgiven
Love is always my weakness

  2. I wish you could add another reaction button...as in "I LOVE THIS" poem. I love this poem...felt hitting the "like" button was a blasphemy.
