Liquid Death

Into her arm goes the sweetest relief 
A beautiful disaster of liquid death doubled with a touch of nose candy 
She’s hitting the edge of death wishing for it to take her away 
But death won’t come to the willing 
Numb is the only emotion felt 
Not an emotion but a void in life while living 
Independence without experience took her places she shouldn’t have gone 
Introducing her to liquid death 
Against the wishes of her family and friends she stood defiantly 
Until one day they left her crying 
Neglected for so long 
Wasting away in a grimy shack 
With the man who took her life through Hell 
Breaking her face on the nasty sheetrock walls 
The slums are filled with the screaming agony of suffering 
Echoing down the alleyways like an escaping soul 
A bleak existence compared to what once was 
A beauty queen so long ago 
With dangerous curves and southern charm 
Degraded to a hood rat drug fiend 
Curves lost with time 
She remembers between cycles of a drunken stupor 
What once was and what could have been 
She remembers the good times and the bad 
But nothing compares to the pain that’s felt in her current reality 
She must make an escape but he entices her with her weakness for Liquid death 
But she must escape 
Escape from him 
Escape from this life 
Escape from liquid death 

Tony L. Jefferson, Jr. 2009
