I find that in my dreams I'm always running

by Arianna Pendragon

Age Group: Adult


and it's a battle of attrition that we're losing week by week.

you've been drinking whiskey all night, and you're slumped over on your front porch. the alcohol is coursing through your veins like rusted hypodermics and you wince with every breath. the cigarette in your right hand has burnt down to the filter and it's begun to singe your index and middle fingers.

is this what you wanted from life? to be reduced to this weakened state, hoping for an intervention that isn't going to come? someone to grab you by the shoulders and carry you to safety. you're not exactly sure. a girl you know says that you've made yourself impossible to love, with the binge drinking and the nicotine that pumps through your muscles every morning. the sensible side of you agrees with her, while your pride tells her to *** off.

you remember better days when you were fourteen. days when all you needed was a budweiser and maybe a few hits off a joint to feel good. now it's a bottle of jack and a pack of cigarettes. a shoddy replacement for happiness. a false hope, if you will. more like don quixote, than anything else.

you sit with heavy alcoholic breath and sing into the night; "i am a leader but you will not follow me, i ain't no preacher for i'm full of blasphemy, see you in hell, boys."
