9. Bottled Pains

He bottles up his emotions

Hoping to mask his pain with the alcohol in his veins.

To zoom past the fears and onto the healing

But the heat of those moments will never change his past.

He looks back at those times with a strange glance

His lethargic behavior was self deprecating and dismal

In hopes of healing he turned to his lover.
