I Stayed

Poem By Bridget Bush

You would get drunk and yell and scream,
never too nice and always so mean.
always so angry at the world I'd see,
although the anger was pointed at me..
I stayed

so many drugs in your bloodstream
too messed up to even scream
I believed your 'I love you' facad
so I treated you like a god...
I stayed

Then you quit all the illegal things
I fogot the side effects that brings
I was blinded by my love for you
even though your hatred was seeping through
I stayed

You'd drown yourself in vodka and beer
so your mind couldn't think clear
screaming more and picking fights
breaking appliances and smashing lights
I stayed

I woke up one morning to finally see
that you never truly loved me
I would have moved mountains for you
but that's my stupidity and now we're through
I left

Thank You, Thank You

Thank you, thank you
I've lifted me up where you left me down
Brushed off the water when you left me to drown
For all the hurt you gave to me

Kiss You, Touch You, Feel You, Want You

You've got me burning
My mind's wheels keep turning
No matter how hard I've tried
I always find myself tongue tied

The Beach

My mind is on a sandy beach,
my body stuck in hell.
A salty scent burnt in my nose,
a secret I won't tell.

Vicodin: A Quitters Dilemma

Drops of white heaven compacted into pill form
burning intensity in my pocket
hands fumbling them about
four tablets of glory waiting to be taken


Stop resisting, just give in
It's all your fault, you are the sin
Breakdown and lose
you cannot choose


Your fingers play, exploring the netherworld sins of foreplay
your sensory digit of venom black
surrounding the cushiony mortals of southern rays
a stench of Southern Comfort flaring from your nostrils
