#WDYS — The Wreckage

I was so hurt, so angry
When you broke up with me
I didn’t mean to
Hit you so hard
But I did

I left in a hurry
Got in my car
Drove to the bar
To drown my sorrows
In alcohol

I had a lot to drink
The bartender offered
To call me a cab
But I refused
Said I was fine to drive
I wasn’t

I was so tired
So drunk
I lost control
Hit a tree
Mangled metal
Broken glass

I should be dead
I’m just badly broken
Physically
Emotionally
From the wreckage
That is my life

I pick up a shard of glass
Hold it up
See my reflection
I don’t like
What I see

    I am happy that you survived, but I think you should stick with the gummies and stay off the booze.

    Well written Fandango! (Is it a good thing that my phone suggests a name as unique as Fandango after just a few letters? Ha, ha!)
