Here we go again,

No, no, no.

Save me.

 

It's not even noon yet,

and I hear the all to familiar hissing sound.

A beer has been cracked open.

 

I stay hidden in my safety zone,

My bedroom.

 

You don't bother me,

You think I'm mad at you.

 

Here we go again,

No, no, no.

Save me.

 

For the final time.

I'm not mad,

I'm just.. fine.

 

I can't look at you,

I'm embarrassed,

I'm ashamed.

 

Here we go again

No, no, no.

Save me.

 

I guess this is all to foolish.

To believe you were done.

You need to help yourself.

 

I can no longer help you.

I love you,

But I cannot help you.

 

I tried,

I tried so damn hard.

I'm not giving up.

I'm standing down.

 

Here we go again,

No, no, no.

Save me.

 

You've been taken away from me,

Consumed by the bloody alcohol in front of you.

 

You try to be there.

It doesn't work when you're like this.

I can't look at you right.

 

I'm ashamed,

Embarrassed.

 

Here we go again,

No, no, no.

Save me.

 

I pray for you,

Always.

I love you,

Always.

I am here for you,

Always.

 

Dearest mother,

I am your daughter,

I am your friend,

But I cannot watch you do this to yourself.

 

Here we go again, 

No, no, no.

Save me.
