bitter pill

it’s a bitter pill I’m swallowing
This I know is all my own.
With no help from anyone,
I have brought in the unknown.

Shredded to bits by my desires.
boundaries breaking with bitterness.
I suck this wretched pill of mine,
with each breath it makes me sick,

And still I want the wine.

Both Wine and pill I’ve twisted,
from two into one.
A gaping hole invades my heart
As night eats up the sun.

Make your leave, if you will.
But, take your judgement  too
You must remember your own pill
or walk a mile in my shoes.

you think you see the difference
you may think your better too.
The shame is not appreciated
especially not from you.

    Wow Lola, this is the best poem I have read of yours. Very sad and reflective of the society we live in – I feel you, me and a lot of others in this. “As night eats up the sun” is a great image/metaphor. It must be in the air – I felt this line last night and I couldn’t sleep.
