Seven Days of Sobriety – Eduard Dantes
These past few days of sobriety
Have been quite all right.
Better than others in fact.
But I can feel the thoughts building,
They are growing louder and louder in my head;
They grow slowly, but surely.
They build up faster than I can write
And I fear that soon, my brain will be packed.
And all this watching, reading and thinking
Is making it impossible to go to bed.
These thoughts will cost me dearly,
For they soon have to be quiet
And there is only one poison that can detract
From these loud thoughts I keep hearing
These thoughts that threaten to crack my head and leave me dead.
Yes, these past few days of sobriety
Have been quite all right,
Better than most, in fact…
