Let It Fade


By Mercedes ChavezPublished 3 months ago 1 min read
Slow Burn by Mercedes Chavez

It's just a little treat

Just a little pill

A couple sips here and there

Let the smoke fill your lungs

Anything to make it all stop

Stop the chaos

Stop the noise

Can't be left alone with the thoughts

The memories are unbearable

How could something that brought joy

Be the cause of so much pain

I still feel your touch on my flesh

Your voice still rings in my ears

The taste of you still lingers on the tip of my tongue

I can't fight back the tears

I try to sleep

But every time I close my eyes

All I can see is you

I take the treat

Mix it with a sip

Sometimes a pill

It's all I can do

To make the memory of you
