Some days a melody plays

no one hears but me

Inside my brain

draining away pain

like no drug ever could

Should you leave

Should you go

No matter now

Heart cleaved

Bow, take your leave

Soul inside is full

like the silver moon

but unchanging

Never to quarter

Never less than complete

I endured hell

days on end,

soaked in gin

full to the brim

Desperate to alleviate false sins

grin, pretend, pain soars

until the melody beseeched

breached the dam

Free again.
