Broken bottle - Far from home

lost grip                                              
broken bottle                                            
no more to swallow 

The bottle fell behind the bar           
losing the liquor to be lapped up         
mixing the mead into my memory 

Crimes caused by a twist of the top      
the lights contract the engines                
giving rise to the fuel inside

I never tried to stop it                                 
I surely did enjoy it                                 
the bottle holds my spirit

Cursed and battered wives sit silent 
beneath the waves of whiskey           
stillness arrests their sentiments

Hate rage riots filled the broken bottle 
now empty and faded and faking fast 
emotions find the past in destruction

Always alone                                             
to lose the guilty tone                                
I migrate far from home
