Wine O' Clock

Updated on March 29, 2015

I woke up at wine o' clock in the morning.

I drank my thoughts away, but

couldn't do the same

with my emotions.

I sucked my tongue to savor the flavor

I've become addicted to.

If only it were my heart in your hands.

I wish I had given it to you.

At wine o' clock, the sun isn't up

and I need a bit of courage.

A mirage is what I call God,

hopes and dreams go unnoticed.

Are you happy?

Are you lonely?

Will you give me another try?

I pushed you away because of my fears,

but all I do is cry.

I wish I was covered in the beauty of the butterfly.

I love to cry.

Isn't that what love's about?

I'm crying my eyes out and living in doubt.

I know I will never figure it out.

And who's to say I won't break your heart again?

Why did you take a chance on me?

You kiss me slowly and obsessively making me wanna vomit.

I swear I'm not into you, I won't think of why you called me at wine o' clock in the morning.

Why am I on your mind when you first wake up?

      Your angle on this addiction is well crafted. I can't imagine how hard it must be to battle these thoughts first thing in the morning.

      I like that, o'clock, though I can't imagine drinking wine first thing on waking up. Great poem.
