The Girl At The Bar

NordWood Themes

I see the pain in your eyes

The pain you’re trying to push down

With every sip of that drink

And every shot you take

It’s a momentary fix

To an impossible problem

The loss of someone so close

Yet so distant

And with each drink

The pain feels further away

But it’s also turning you into

Someone you don’t recognize

Someone who is afraid

That the next thought

The next memory

Might push you over the ledge

Into an abyss that you can’t escape

But you can

You will

You will find your light

And you will find your way

And while the scar will always remain

You will find your strength

To face every new day. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
