The Alcoholic's Wife

 

 

I will never be enough.

Your burning desire for her -- I can't compete

constantly on your mind,

endlessly on repeat.

You need her.

 

I will never be enough.

Her taste on your lips, help to revive

coursing through your veins,

make you feel alive.

You crave her.

 

I will never be enough.

She wraps you in her euphoric feeling

hiding all emotions,

she is so concealing.

She numbs you.

 

I will never be enough.

Your obsession with her  -- It'll never end

broken inside,

no one else can mend.

She destroys you.
