A poem about a woman who is emotionally wounded and struggles to keep herself together as she attempts to rebuild her life.

self-medicate

your addiction
to your own destruction
is slowly driving me away
day by day
you cannot keep paying the devil
to make it through each night
is this the part you are doomed to play
faking your way through each day
babe
babe
babe
oh my lovely babe
do not let this dark thing fade
what am I supposed to say
I dive to the bottom of the well
but I cannot find whatever wish
you so carelessly threw away
what am I to you
babe
babe
babe
my lovely babe
do not let this dark thing fade
I cannot help you
put yourself back together
or help you outrun
all those terrible memories
you cannot seem to switch off
you say home no longer feels like home
you have this overwhelming feeling
that you need to run away
babe
babe
babe
oh my lovely babe
do not let this dark thing fade
I cannot keep helping you
put yourself back together
only to watch you fall apart
over and over and over
babe
babe
babe
my lovely babe
do not let this dark thing fade
I babysit your beast
it rollls in from the east
and parks itself on my couch
as I watch TV
seen but unseen
my dark dazzling queen
I call to you
babe
babe
babe
oh my lovely babe
don't let this dark thing fade
please
your craziness is driving me insane
do not crawl into your own dark grave
please
please stay
my beautiful
wounded babe
